This project evaluated a clinical quality management system using cognitive task analysis at three Federally Quality Health Centers.
In order to develop a research agenda on the intersection between mental health and health information technology, this project convened a workshop between AHRQ and the National Institute of Mental Health.
Developing and Using Valid Clinical Quality Metrics for Health Information Technology (Health IT) with Health Information Exchange (HIE)
This project sought to identify existing, and create new, clinical quality of care metrics able to be reliably retrieved from electronic systems, such as electronic health records and health information exchanges.
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.
This project developed nine obesity care quality measures and developed and validated the use of an automated method using natural language processing to utilize the measures.
Implemented the time-insensitive predictive instruments built into the computerized electrocardiograph in emergency medical service settings and emergency departments; also evaluated its impact on reducing errors and avoidable delays in emergency care.
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.
Integrated health services research, clinic redesign, and electronic practice management through the implementation of electronic health records and clinical decision support systems (CDSS) by partnering with three rural Tribal Health Programs to implement electronic health records with clinical decision support systems.
Improving the Quality of Pediatric Emergency Care Using an Electronic Medical Record Registry and Clinician Feedback
This project developed an emergency care data registry for pediatric patients using electronic health records and assessed change in benchmarks for quality care measures.
