This project developed an emergency care data registry for pediatric patients using electronic health records and assessed change in benchmarks for quality care measures.
This study explored the challenges to adopting electronic health records in safety net practices including nurse-managed health centers and federally-qualified health centers.
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.
This project established the feasibility of extracting quality indicators from hospice electronic medical records for comparative effectiveness research.
Assesses the value of health IT to clinicians through creation of CDSS tools integrated with clinical documentation workflow and physician performance feedback, its impact on clinical decision support and quality assessment, and its cost-effectiveness.
This study developed electronic medical record-based quality indices for eleven cardiovascular primary care services. It related physicians’ prior index scores to subsequent disease incidence and to care utilization in their patients.
The purpose of this project was to leverage existing health information exchange data to improve quality measurement of two measures for potentially preventable emergency department visits.
Evaluated the effects of staggered installation of an Epic health IT system that includes an EMR with provider order entry and clinical decision support in primary care settings on quality, safety, and resource use within a large integrated delivery system on cohort of 780,000 members with chronic illnesses.
This project was designed to evaluate and improve the quality of screening and diagnostic colonoscopies in ambulatory care settings. Defined quality measures for colonoscopy were used in individual quality report cards with 15 measures created.
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.
