This project designed and developed a clinical decision support tool called VisualDecisionLinc (VDL) to aid in the initial treatment strategies for major depressive disorder.
Systematically assessed improvements in patient safety and experience of care associated with implementation of four decision support function embedded in an electronic health record: 1) the influence of weight based dosing on pediatric adverse drug events; 2) the influence of a test result tracking system on appropriate followup of ordered tests; 3) the influence of automated reminders on symptom monitoring and medications for children with asthma and attention deficit disorder.
This project evaluated the feasibility of implementing The Symptom Monitoring & Systematic Assessment in Young Survivors (SyMon-SAYS) in pediatric oncology clinics.
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.
