This research will evaluate the lifecycle of clinical decision support (CDS), as currently implemented at most health systems, against a future CDS state that incorporates the use of shareable CDS resources created using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s CDS Connect tools.
This project will develop and evaluate an electronic clinical decision support tool for care of patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome.
This project will examine health information exchange (HIE) usage patterns, the barriers and facilitators of HIE use, and the impact of HIE use by emergency department clinicians.
This project will develop a method to use video captured electronic health record interactions to analyze the context around medication errors, identify design elements that contributed to the errors, and make design recommendations to mitigate those errors.
The Electronic Data Methods Forum is charged with advancing the national dialogue on the infrastructure and methods of health research and quality improvement using electronic clinical data, with the goal of improving patient care and outcomes.
The Electronic Data Methods (EDM) Forum facilitated learning and collaboration among researchers and other key stakeholders who are generating the data, methods, and knowledge needed to build learning health systems that will improve patient care and outcomes.
This project investigates how the Meaningful Use criteria affects the information seeking, team-interaction, and decisionmaking activities of emergency department clinicians at two urban hospitals.
This project will apply the science of human factors and cognitive engineering to the design of clinical decision support and information technology with the goal of improving patient safety.
The project will develop and test a large set of alerts at two large health systems to demonstrate that alerts can help prevent wrong-drug and wrong-patient errors and improve the completeness of the problem list.
This project developed a natural language processing electronic health record search tool that automatically identifies and ranks relevant clinical information based on a patient’s presenting complaint within the emergency department setting.
