Expands upon an electronic medical records-sharing initiative for high-risk infants and their families in Mississippi, linking new health centers and clinics and serving a rural area that spans 17 counties; uses telemedicine technologies to enhance evidence-based developmental care for newborns in acute care hospitals; and creates Web-based decision support resources for physicians who care for infants.
This project built a prototype data exchange and functioned as a learning laboratory which identified architecture and policy issues needing to be addressed to establish a sustainable business model for health information exchanges.
This project pilot tested and evaluated a smoking cessation clinical decision support system, finding it was feasible to implement, easy to use and helpful for patient care, and led to an increase in patient quit attempts.
Assessed the value of software applications to facilitate information transfer during the high-risk transition from hospital to home at discharge, and compared health information technology to usual care for benefits outcomes, adverse events, effectiveness, costs, and satisfaction among patients and physicians.
