This research will examine a State-subsidized integration of prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) into electronic health record systems and its impact on PDMP use and provider prescribing behavior.
This study will integrate a previously piloted risk tool and clinical decision aid, MammoScreen, with an EHR to provide personalized decision support for both patients and clinicians to improve quality of care for women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.
The research team will implement and evaluate an integration application that incorporates relevant health information exchange data directly into the electronic health record in the emergency department.
This research’s goal is to show that interoperability, including adoption of regional health information exchanges, improves mortality rates and care efficiency at the population and patient levels.
This project aims to refine and develop methods to address missing electronic health record data to improve data quality and research validity.
This research assessed the use of an electronic social needs screening tool integrated into the workflow of an emergency department setting that facilitated referrals for those in need, and found that although only a small subset of patients expressing need received referrals, the strategy showed promise to monitor population health post-discharge.
This project will evaluate the effects of a technology-based patient-reported outcomes system on patient management of type 2 diabetes in primary care practices.
This project will enhance novel algorithms for matching patient health information across data sources, implement them, and evaluate their accuracy.
This research assessed the use of a health information exchange system in emergency department settings, finding that although overall usage is relatively low, additional functionalities such as single sign on add value to clinical decision making and enable faster retrieval of patient records from external sources compared to traditional methods when embedded into existing workflows.
This research demonstrated primary care providers’ complementary use of “push” and “pull” health information exchange technologies to meet their information needs and provides evidence that “pull” exchange reduces potentially avoidable healthcare utilization.
