Long-Term Care Facility
This project will evaluate the comparative effectiveness of asynchronous telepsychiatry versus synchronous telepsychiatry in a skilled nursing facility population using a 12-month randomized controlled trial.
This project engaged individuals with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities to expand upon existing consumer mobile health application design guidance for social networks.
This project will examine the health information needs of older adults to inform the design of systems to support their health and independence.
Developed new systems and a high level of integration and cooperation in four significant areas: medication management, patient discharge, high-level integration of information, and the development of a new paradigm for evaluating, selecting, and implementing new technologies.
Assessed current technology resources and planned implementation of area-wide electronic communications and connectivity to electronic health records and a patient-support Web-based data system.
Designed a county-wide health information system that allowed health information sharing and permitted real-time order placement by hospitals, health departments, private physicians' offices, clinics, and long-term care facilities.
Created a community-wide EMR with integrated clinical decision support that is available across the continuum of care including a rural hospital, a home health agency, 14 physician clinics, and 5 long-term care facilities.
Implemented a Patient-Centered Medication Information System (PCMIS) to provide secure access to accurate, complete, and current medication information for patients, clinicians, pharmacists, and nurses, reconciled differences in medication information, and provided a platform for evidence-based decision support; assessed the benefits and costs of the system.
Implemented a health IT system with added best-practices decision support modules in 7 nursing homes and evaluated the impact on care processes, resident health outcomes, and staff efficiency and satisfaction.
