Implemented a series of new health information technologies in carefully staged processes over 2 years to include an Inpatient Pharmacy System, Electronic Medication Administration Record, Bar Coding System, and a CPOE System; evaluated the impact of these systems on safety, quality, and efficiency.
This project worked on assessing, defining, demonstrating, and evaluating best practices for knowledge management and clinical decision support across multiple ambulatory care settings and electronic health record technology platforms.
The project team successfully developed and implemented an automated system for measuring the rate of adverse drug events in pediatric patients.
This project evaluated the multiple work activities, roles, and technologies in six primary care practices that introduced new health information technology tools in their redesign of care coordination.
The goal of this project was to promote increased adherence to evidence-based pharmacotherapy guidelines through both traditional clinic-based and newer models of care.
This project conducted a randomized trial of a medication management system that supports medication adjustments and scheduling of laboratory tests independent of office visits.
This project evaluated how the implementation of a secure e-mail messaging (e-messaging) system between clinicians and patients affects provider efficiency, utilization of emergency department for medication refills, and patients’ satisfaction.
The Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics (CERTs) Program focused on translating health information technology research into improved clinical practices related to medication safety, effectiveness, and cost.
This project evaluated whether an interactive voice response system used by parents prior to routine health maintenance visits could improve parental activation, the comprehensiveness of care provided, and medication safety.
This study evaluated whether collecting risk factors to generate an electronic personalized health risk appraisal for coronary heart disease, diabetes, and breast and colorectal cancer was associated with improved patient-provider communication, risk assessment, and breast cancer screening plans in the subsequent year.
