This research focused on the design, implementation, and evaluation of a comprehensive, practical, and innovative model of care delivery that incorporates shared decisionmaking.
This project identified clinicians’ information needs and designed, developed, implemented, and evaluated a knowledge-delivery prototype to help clinicians meet those needs.
This project evaluated a clinical quality management system using cognitive task analysis at three Federally Quality Health Centers.
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.
This project developed two e-Prescribing implementation toolsets, one for independent pharmacies, and the other for health care provider organizations.
This project conducted a systematic literature review to catalogue study designs used to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of clinical decision support and knowledge management systems.
This project studied electronic health record use, workflow, physician-patient communication, cognitive load, and user satisfaction and found multiple factors that influence physicians' work practices and perceived workload.
Health Information Technology Enablement of Quality Measurement: Health Information Technology Expert Panel
In this project, the National Quality Forum reconvened the Health Information Technology Expert Panel (HITEP-II) to gather, synthesize, and refine clinical workflow maps, focusing on care processes related to the previously prioritized set of measures.
This study evaluated the impact of a widely used e-prescribing system in order to understand characteristics of successful e-prescribing adoption.
Implemented an ambulatory computer physician order entry (ACPOE) system with clinical decision support capabilities in an ambulatory, community-based, integrated health-system; evaluated the impact of the system both internally, on organizational processes and human factors, and externally, on patient safety as measured by medication errors and adverse drug events.
