The Cardiology department at the Western Health and Social Care Trust (WHSCT) has teamed up with Ulster University’s Belfast School of Art to co-design a new device to improve the clinical operator workflows for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). Dr Aaron Peace, (cardiologist) and Dr Justin Magee (product designer) have worked together towards innovative new product development and subsequently, workflow service improvements.
Note from Loraine Hanna
In creating the DOI I needed to decide where to use the DOI to point to: either the HSCNI website or to PURE – it should point to the best place for accessing the report. I used the PURE portal URL to create the DOI – as opposed to the HSCNI URL. My rationale is that Ulster have a long-term commitment to maintaining PURE and the chances of the URL of your output in the PURE Portal changing are small. The PURE record contains the link to the HSCI URL. I’ve taken just a short amount of time to do a little research to test my rationale: it is hard to get to the detail of how other uni’s handle this issue. However Cambridge are open with their processes and DOIs created by Cambridge currently point to the Cambridge repository: their rational states that this places emphasis on the university to maintain DOIs so that they always point to the correct underlying item (see https://osc.cam.ac.uk/repository/digital-object-identifiers-doi). So I am reasonably confident of the decision to use Ulster’s PURE repository URL.
