This project will create and evaluate a tool that gathers patient and family member feedback on pediatric care. The tool will make the feedback rapidly available to providers through a dashboard to enable timely and responsive safety improvement efforts.
This pilot project implemented a Social Knowledge Networking system and concluded that it supported progress toward meaningful use of medication reconciliation technology in an electronic health record.
This project will integrate an existing Natural Language Processing system into neurology clinical practice and develop a decision support mechanism to alert providers about patients with epilepsy who are potential surgical candidates with the goal to shorten the time to surgical evaluation for eligible patients.
This project will evaluate and compare different tools within electronic health records to assist pediatric primary care clinicians with providing higher quality childhood obesity care to help slow weight gain in children with obesity.
This project will formulate evidence-based recommendations for clinical decision support used by community pharmacist delivering medication therapy management. The goal is to reduce medication-related problems and improve health outcomes for chronically ill patients.
The goal of this project is to generate a systematic and replicable process for transforming evidence-based research findings, including findings from patient-centered outcomes research, into shareable clinical decision support (CDS) standards and a publicly available CDS prototype.
The study assessed perspectives on electronic health record safety recommendations and found that physicians generally agreed with the recommendations, despite not being familiar with them.
This project will develop and validate new measures needed for automatically identifying violations of the “Five Rights of Medication Safety”: right patient, right dose, right medication, right route, and right frequency.
This project will develop a patient-based dashboard to improve cognitive hygiene in the emergency department, aiding in the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome.
Focusing on the work environment of nurses, this project will study the organizational conditions under which electronic health records function best in hospitals and their potential to improve the outcomes of medical-surgical patients.
