This project will study the impact of design on providers’ interactions with the electronic health record and identify strategies to enhance design to improve patient safety.
This project developed and pilot-tested a novel, outcomes-based emergency department triage tool and found that risk stratification and waiting times were improved for some patients.
This project convened stakeholder panels to inform the development of an indications-enabled computerized prescriber order entry system.
This project will provide an evidence base to better inform user-centered design and implementation processes to improve health information technology, usability, and safety.
This project assessed provider mental workload and performance while processing electronic abnormal test results and found that a test result tracking mechanism improved physicians’ clinical performance.
This project compared the risk of orders placed on the wrong electronic patient record when providers were limited to having one patient record open at a time versus up to four and found no difference in errors between the two.
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.
In an effort to reduce medical errors and adverse events, this project will determine the information needs of hospitalized patients and caregivers, and develop design requirements for a solution that supports communicating safety concerns to providers.
This project built an automated intervention that recognized critical imaging results that require additional testing and populated a discharge summary with recommendations, resulting in improved patient followup.
This study examined clinical decision task complexity to guide the design of innovative clinical decision support to for high-level reasoning in complex decision tasks.
