Integrated Delivery Network
The goal of this project is to improve chronic illness care for ethnically and racially diverse patients using a patient portal.
This project applied a human factors-based framework to understand factors associated with missed test results and found that health information technology is a key barrier to test followup.
This study explored whether a health information technology-enabled strategy could improve quality of care for chronic conditions and preventive services.
This project extensively tested, refined, and evaluated a tool called the Hazard Manager, a tool designed to support the characterization of hazards and communicate their potential and actual causality in adverse effects.
Analyzed a patient secure messaging application for patients with depression, congestive heart failure, and diabetes, and evaluated potential for safer and more effective medical care.
This project built a prototype data exchange and functioned as a learning laboratory which identified architecture and policy issues needing to be addressed to establish a sustainable business model for health information exchanges.
This project developed the capability to electronically create and securely transmit prescriptions for controlled substances, thus improving medication management at the point of care.
This project evaluated the economic and quality outcomes of long-term Patient-Centered Medical Home clinics in the HealthPartners Medical Group system.
This study examined the association between electronic health record use and care coordination and clinical care quality for patients with diabetes, and how team working relationships modify these effects.
This study developed electronic medical record-based quality indices for eleven cardiovascular primary care services. It related physicians’ prior index scores to subsequent disease incidence and to care utilization in their patients.
