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 research will further scale clinical decision support aimed at preventing the prescription of inappropriate medications to older adults upon discharge from the emergency department.
This research explores the effectiveness of an e-prescribing tool to electronically communicate medication discontinuation orders between electronic health records and pharmacies.
Context is Critical: Understanding When and Why Electronic Health Record-Related Safety Hazards Happen
This study showed the feasibility and value of creating a methodology and process for a health information technology black box to inform electronic health record design and usability.
This research assessed the etiology of medication ordering errors, finding that errors stemmed from multi-level risk factors and showing the utility of a void alert tool to prospectively capture the broad range of errors that may occur in practice that may be missed by using traditional retrospective error reporting methods.
This pilot project implemented a Social Knowledge Networking system and concluded that it supported progress toward meaningful use of medication reconciliation technology in an electronic health record.
Develop and Validate Health IT Safety Measures To Capture Violations of the Five Rights of Medication Safety
This project will develop and validate new measures needed for automatically identifying violations of the “Five Rights of Medication Safety”: right patient, right dose, right medication, right route, and right frequency.
This project convened stakeholder panels to inform the development of an indications-enabled computerized prescriber order entry system.
The purpose of this study was to refine and further develop the Leapfrog Computerized Provider Order Entry Evaluation Tool and assess hospital performance on the tool over time.
