The purpose of this study is to describe how communication technologies make it easier or more difficult for nurses and physicians to communicate with each other, with a goal of finding ways to support effective communication.
The project will develop and test a large set of alerts at two large health systems to demonstrate that alerts can help prevent wrong-drug and wrong-patient errors and improve the completeness of the problem list.
This research created, piloted, and evaluated FIQS, the Family Input to Quality and Safety tool, that allows pediatric patients and their caregivers to provide safety reports regarding their inpatient care.
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 implement and evaluate a previously developed, interactive, patient-centered discharge toolkit to improve the transition of care from the inpatient to outpatient settings.
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.
This study assessed the usability and impact of inpatient portals on patient experience, engagement, and perceptions of care.
This project developed a tool to promote activation, communication, engagement, and self-management of pediatric blood and marrow transplant patients and their parents and found that patient-centric tools can successfully engage caregivers in hospital care.
