This research will implement in pharmacies a patient-reported outcomes collection tool, PatientToc™, to collect data around medication adherence that can be used by pharmacists to improve adherence.
This project will examine the impact of implementing the e-Prescribing standard CancelRx on outpatient medication discrepancies and on clinic and pharmacy workflows.
This project will formulate evidence-based recommendations for clinical decision support used by community pharmacist delivering medication therapy management. The goal is to reduce medication-related problems and improve health outcomes for chronically ill patients.
Implemented an interactive video-conferencing system at rural hospitals to provide continuing education for pharmacist and pharmacy technicians as well as a model for bedside verification of medication administration and medication bar coding; also evaluated structure, process, and outcomes related to improvement of patient safety and more effective patient medication management.
Shared an electronic medical records system that improved patient safety and quality of care. Also served as a critical learning tool for clinicians in a coalition of three large health organizations and 24 primary care clinics in northern Iowa.
This project designed, developed, piloted, and studied an e-Prescribing utility called Rx Gateway.
This project involved six e-Prescribing physician software vendors who coded, implemented, and deployed e-Prescribing software standards in Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Tennessee.
This project, part of five grants awarded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to conduct electronic prescribing (e-prescribing) pilots, tested e- prescribing standards within small, community-based practices.
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 developed two e-Prescribing implementation toolsets, one for independent pharmacies, and the other for health care provider organizations.
