Federally Qualified Health Center
This project will develop and disseminate an innovative communication system to identify and mitigate health risks for young African American women before pregnancy as a means of reducing health disparities in birth outcomes.
This study will test the hypothesis that low-income, disadvantaged patients can provide high-quality patient-generated health data and patient-reported outcomes through commercial technologies, and that these data can be used to improve healthcare quality and delivery.
This project studied patient portals, their use in primary care, and the impact of use on chronic conditions, and identified opportunities to improve adoption of patient portals.
This project will clarify the relationship between “pull” and “push” health information exchange usage in primary care settings, and determine the impact of each approach on potentially avoidable and costly health care utilization.
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 project aims to improve access to high quality mental health services for diverse populations by implementing asynchronous telepsychiatry consultations combined with automated online interpreting.
This project assessed the feasibility and measurability care coordination activities and found that the electronic health record was infrequently used to support care coordination.
This project compared high and low intensity support for implementation of clinical decision support (CDS) and found that the low intensity support may be sufficient to help community health centers improve their use of CDS over a relatively short time period.
The objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of patient-accessed teledermatology to traditional in-person office visits for followup management of atopic dermatitis.
Developed approaches to share data on patient clinical and diagnostic information across systems and created an implementation plan for systems integration.
