This project built and evaluated SurvivorLink, an information technology system available via the Web that provides information on the life-long health care needs of childhood cancer survivors.
Transitions in Care
This project identified the information requirements for health information exchange between poison control centers and emergency departments.
This project sought to reduce the use of emergency department services for non-urgent care by improving access to primary care physicians for Medicaid patients via the electronic medical record.
This study examined the association between electronic health record use and care coordination and clinical care quality for patients with diabetes, and how team working relationships modify these effects.
The purpose of this project was to examine the feasibility of developing an electronic health information network to provide clinicians with patients' medical information during care transfers and found that, while feasible, there are significant barriers to information exchange.
Using Information Technology for Patient-Centered Communication and Decisionmaking about Medications

This project sought to identify and assess the best methods of implementing an advanced patient-centered integrated personal health record called MyPreventiveCare.
Established an electronic medical record system to enhance communication among area health care organizations and promote safe, high-quality care for patients with chronic illnesses. Initially, the project focused on patients with congestive heart failure.
Develops a secure, comprehensive, virtual health record for medically underserved patients that will lead to the implementation of a health IT infrastructure necessary to support a single, shared EMR application to promote the community-wide exchange of patient information for clinical decision support, research, and disease management on behalf of low-income, uninsured people.
