The project supported the Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare (WISH) that addresses design limitations and other issues that stymie the development and adoption of health information technology.
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.
This project studied electronic health record use, workflow, physician-patient communication, cognitive load, and user satisfaction and found multiple factors that influence physicians' work practices and perceived workload.
This study examined the relationships between the stage of electronic health record adoption, missed nursing care, and the nursing practice environment’s adverse effect on hospitalized patients’ outcomes and satisfaction.
Developed new systems and a high level of integration and cooperation in four significant areas: medication management, patient discharge, high-level integration of information, and the development of a new paradigm for evaluating, selecting, and implementing new technologies.
Using Health Information Technology in Practice Redesign: Impact of Health Information Technology on Workflow
This project studied the impact on workflow of applications that allow patients to electronically share information with clinics on workflow and at how clinics redesign information workflows to incorporate this data.
Assesses the implementation of CPOE/ EHR systems in 4 intensive care units (ICUs) and evaluates the value and outcomes of patient safety involving medication errors; quality of care; end users' job tasks, perceptions, and attitudes; and financial impact.
This project tested a pediatric voice therapy telehealth system and found that it was feasible to implement and well accepted by children and their families.
This study developed a thorough understanding of paper tools that nurses use to organize patient information and identified four major concepts.
This project applied a human factors-based framework to understand factors associated with missed test results and found that health information technology is a key barrier to test followup.
