This project will develop and evaluate an electronic health record-embedded clinical decision support tool that draws upon the strength of analytical and naturalistic decision-making to optimize the use of blood cultures in critically ill children.
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.
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 study health information technology adaptation using sociotechnical theory.
This project identified patients’ needs, preferences, and responses when receiving abnormal test result notifications through an electronic patient portal, and developed a usable prototype to improving test result communication.
This project assessed provider mental workload and performance while processing electronic abnormal test results and found that a test result tracking mechanism improved physicians’ clinical performance.
This project seeks to develop an understanding of the cognitive work of clinician teams and family members involved in pediatric trauma care transitions in order to design usable and useful health information technologies.
This project identified strategies that mitigate the stress associated with provider use of health information and communications technologies.
This project studied the influence of social networks on technology implementation and found that clinicians’ networks influence beliefs and use of the electronic medical records.
The purpose of this project is to evaluate the cognitive and team work involved in venous thromboembolism prevention and management and to develop design requirements for a clinical decision support tool that supports this collaborative work.
