This research will assess the validity of patient-level computable social factor phenotypes used to predict a patient’s risk of increased healthcare utilization and costs.
An Electronic Health Record-Based Screening Tool to Support Safe Discharges of COVID-19 Patients in the Emergency Department
This research will develop and validate a COVID-19 emergency department (ED) return screening tool that will provide ED clinicians a risk assessment to guide admissions and discharges to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection.
This research will compare the use of predictive modeling versus traditional questionnaires to identify those with unmet social needs, use the superior method to inform the development of a clinical decision support tool, and evaluate the tool’s impact on referrals to social providers.
Transforming Kidney Care in the Emergency Department Using Artificial Intelligence-Driven Clinical Decision Support
This research will develop and evaluate an artificial intelligence-driven clinical decision support system to detect and manage acute kidney injury in the emergency department.
This is a questionnaire designed to be completed by caregivers in an urgent care, emergency department, or ambulatory care setting. The tool includes questions to assess attitudes of telemedicine.
Improving Healthcare Processes and Outcomes by Directly Integrating Health Information Exchange Data in the Clinical Workflow

Telehealth and Emergency Medicine: A Consensus Conference to Map the Intersection of Emergency Medicine and Telehealth
The 2020 Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Consensus Conference, “Telehealth and Emergency Medicine: A Consensus Conference to Map the Intersection of Emergency Medicine and Telehealth” developed a research agenda to support future clinical practice and evidence-based investigation at the intersection of telehealth and emergency medicine.
This research successfully adapted and evaluated scaling of the Enhancing Quality of Prescribing Practices for Older Adults Discharged from the Emergency Department medication safety program to an additional commercial electronic health record and added additional sites, finding a significant reduction in potentially inappropriate medication prescribing in the emergency department setting.
This research study examined the relationships between clinician use of order sets, patient-level order variation, and patient outcomes and found that order set usage reduced order variation and improved patient outcomes in patients with sepsis.
This research demonstrated the feasibility of a web-based clinical decision support platform that is electronic health record-agnostic and supports evidence-based medicine at the point of care.
