Created an information management environment that integrated patient care data, standardized practice variation and use of best practices, and supported the delivery of a seamless continuum of patient care throughout the health system through CPOE.
Improving Asthma Care in an Integrated Safety Net through a Commercially Available Electronic Medical Record
The overarching goal for this project is to improve the quality and patient-centeredness of asthmatic ambulatory care for children and adults.
Developed a community-wide HIE collaborative in a rural area that gave patients and providers access to comprehensive clinical data on the Internet; developed disease-management prototypes on diabetes, pediatric asthma, depression, and low back pain and evaluated the development, implementation, and outcomes of the collaborative.
The project used text messaging reminders to assess the impact of personal medication management tools on medication adherence in adolescents with asthma.
This project established an integrated information and communication technology system to help older adults age in place and live independently for as long as possible, and found that the system improved user quality of life.
This project evaluated whether an interactive voice response system used by parents prior to routine health maintenance visits could improve parental activation, the comprehensiveness of care provided, and medication safety.
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.
Evaluated the completeness and accuracy of information on symptoms, disease conditions, medications, and allergies generated by parents using a patient-centered health technology called ParentLink, compared to information documented by emergency department physicians and nurses; and assessed ParentLink's impact on patient safety and quality.
This project refined a set of asthma care quality measures and developed and validated the use of an automated method using natural language processing to utilize the measures.
This project worked to develop and implement two health information technology (IT) applications to improve care transitions from the hospital setting to the ambulatory and home settings.
