Transitions in Care
This project will design and implement a care coordination system using a smartphone application that sends location-based alerts to care managers when high-risk patients receive care at a regional hospital or emergency room.
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 implement and evaluate a previously developed, interactive, patient-centered discharge toolkit to improve the transition of care from the inpatient to outpatient settings.
This project will implement and evaluate a “smart” pillbox given to patients in order to understand its ability to minimize discrepancies in prescribed regimens and to improve patients’ medication adherence after hospital discharge.
This project will analyze and model the information requirements, decisionmaking, and workflow of homecare nurses admitting patients and characterize if and how health information technology systems support their needs.
This project will develop a mobile health tool that will prospectively collect patient-centered outcomes data on key symptoms of postoperative bladder cancer patients.
This project analyzed secondary data to identify factors associated with timely opening of electronic health record-based asynchronous alerts, timely response to the alerts, and patient outcomes.
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 built an automated intervention that recognized critical imaging results that require additional testing and populated a discharge summary with recommendations, resulting in improved patient followup.
