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.
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 implement and evaluate a previously developed, interactive, patient-centered discharge toolkit to improve the transition of care from the inpatient to outpatient settings.
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.
This project will apply machine learning against a large data set to develop a model to both understand and predict surgical cancellations on individual pediatric patients at two pediatric surgical sites.
This project developed a natural language processing electronic health record search tool that automatically identifies and ranks relevant clinical information based on a patient’s presenting complaint within the emergency department setting.
This project assessed the clinical and operational implications of electronic health record downtimes and developed a simulation model to support the creation of effective downtime contingency plans.
This project will study health information technology adaptation using sociotechnical theory.
This project will enhance an existing Web-based portal, myADHDportal.com, to integrate behavioral tools alongside existing medication management tools for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
