Ambulatory Clinic Exam Room Design With Respect to Computing Devices to Enhance Patient Centeredness
This project studied the impact of changing the computing layout in a clinical exam room and evaluated its impact on workflow and patient centeredness.
This research evaluated the impact of a telerehabilitation approach among stroke survivors with aphasia, finding it was a cost-effective, feasible approach with high patient satisfaction.
Human Factors Considerations in the Design and Implementation of Telemedicine-Integrated Ambulance-Based Environments for Stroke Care
This research evaluated a telemedicine program that allows specialist evaluation of a stroke patient in an ambulance by connecting paramedics to the specialist, and identified both facilitators and barriers to its use, with proposed remediations.
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.
Researchers surveyed the key features that distinguish active patient portal users from nonusers to best meet the needs of a diverse patient population and inform guidance in areas of need and improvement in portal design and implementation to improve access and reduce barriers.
This research developed and evaluated a semi-automatic approach for conducting literature searches for systematic reviews.
This research will evaluate a novel, technology-enabled intervention that will determine the impact of bedside shift reporting and hourly rounding on nurse-sensitive patient outcomes.
This research aims to develop and evaluate a clinical decision support strategy to promote influenza vaccination among children who are hospitalized with the goal to identify insights that broadly apply to clinical decision support for health maintenance interventions in pediatric acute care settings.
This research will study the implementation of Telehealth Education for Asthma Connecting Hospital and Home (TEACHH), a novel intervention designed to provide an effective asthma educational platform appropriate for all health literacy levels. The intervention includes initial instruction in the hospital and reinforcement at home using virtual visits to reduce barriers to self-management support for children who are hospitalized due to asthma.
