This project examined variability in voluntary movement paths of assisted living facility residents to see if it was greater in patients who fell the week preceding their fall as compared to residents who did not fall.
Implements an emergency medical records system that will provide shared access to patient records across various community health care providers and incorporates electronic tools for prescription distribution and management.
Implemented a bar-coding application to an existing integrated health IT network that alerts providers to potential drug interactions and allergic reactions, tracks "near misses," and provides a permanent record of the patient's medication history that is accessible by providers at any site.
Planned the implementation of an HIE using a secure fiber optic connection between community care providers to share patient demographic, medical records, laboratory results, and radiographic images.
Utilized existing health IT standards to integrate the current stand-alone databases and information systems of a consortium of three rural health care systems as the basis for creating a comprehensive electronic health record for patient care.
This project demonstrated the ability of an interoperable health information exchange and an electronic health record to provide useful quality and safety measures for the vulnerable populations served by two community health center clinics.
Implemented a series of new health information technologies in carefully staged processes over 2 years to include an Inpatient Pharmacy System, Electronic Medication Administration Record, Bar Coding System, and a CPOE System; evaluated the impact of these systems on safety, quality, and efficiency.
Demonstrates the value of an integrated outpatient and inpatient health information system by assessing adherence to evidence-based treatment guidelines for women who are group B streptococcus positive including inappropriate antibiotic use and screening in the outpatient setting, and cost-benefit analysis.
The Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare was held on October 22, 2011 as an interdisciplinary research symposium providing a forum for communicating and disseminating health information technology-related research.
Using Information Technology for Patient-Centered Communication and Decisionmaking about Medications
This project looked at the integration of patient-centered interventions targeting patients, their providers, and their health care organization in an attempt to improve the medication management process.
