This project assessed quality measurement performance and electronic health record (EHR) implementation and found that EHR reminders were associated with improved performance.
This project used qualitative methods to identify strategies for effective and efficient adoption of health information technology by home health agencies.
This project supports work of the United States Health Information Knowledgebase, an ISO/IEC 1179-compliant metadata registry of health care standards.
This project aimed to capture and understand how clinical work is actually done, and then to analyze how the efficiency and quality of care could be measurably improved through health information technology.
This project developed and implemented a large-scale approach to measuring the impact of health information technology on the quality and variability of care in ambulatory settings, and along racial and ethnic lines.
This project evaluated whether the adoption of a community-wide health information exchange reduces utilization and costs of laboratory and radiology testing.
Implemented an ambulatory EMR in multiple rural primary and specialist care provider settings and measures the impact of health information technology on clinical practice, organizational structure, and financial benefits; integrated ambulatory electronic medical record case scenarios into the curricula of the Health Science and Human Services Department to ensure that future health care providers have adequate training and exposure to ambulatory EMR technology.
The project developed and pilot-tested a Web-based implementation of a Team Resource Management (TRM) intervention aimed at improving medication safety in primary care.
This project held an invitation-only conference to examine methodological issues related to the identification and development of outcome measures and their accompanying risk-adjustment models in the electronic health record environment.
This study examined the relationships between the stage of electronic health record adoption, missed nursing care, and the nursing practice environment’s adverse effect on hospitalized patients’ outcomes and satisfaction.
