This project examined the role of health information technology on inpatient health care service demand.
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.
Implemented a computer decision-support system in a 23-county service area in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including several rural clinics; included a training component for physicians and other health care providers, as well as a hospital pharmacy component for adverse drug event management and prevention strategies.
Implemented a series of new health information technologies in carefully staged processes over 2 years to include an Inpatient Pharmacy System, Electronic Medication Administration Record, Bar Coding System, and a CPOE System; evaluated the impact of these systems on safety, quality, and efficiency.
Built upon an existing infrastructure to construct a fully integrated EMR to give clinicians real-time access to patient data through pharmacy management, laboratory management, patient scheduling, barcoding, clinical physician order entry, electronic signature, insurance eligibility, and Pyxis medication-dispensing units at nursing stations.
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.
Assessed the impact of Medical Imaging Informatics on health care costs and quality and developed a business case related to the acquisition and implementation of automated radiology systems; developed a financial model to demonstrate the impact of these systems on provider systems and health care quality.
