This project was one of the Centers for Education and Research on Therapeutics’ projects, a national initiative to increase awareness of the benefits and risks of new, existing, or combined uses of therapeutics through education and research.
This study looked at patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease who would benefit from treatment intensification.
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.
Self Management & Reminders with Technology: SMART Appraisal of an Integrated Personal Health Record
This project modified an existing passive personal health record to become active and interactive to improve health care outcomes by promoting patient self-management and increasing compliance to care recommendations.
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.
Implemented an electronic health records system in a network of community health centers and developed a data warehouse to monitor, aggregate, and provide data for quality improvement.
The Interactive Preventive Health Record is a personal health record that was created and tested to make preventive information actionable for patients.
Designed the implementation of a longitudinal cardiovascular disease information system platform to address disparities viewed as a lifelong disease process, and examined the impact of health IT on quality improvement, medical and financial effectiveness, and increased value.
This study assessed the effects of supportive electronic health record implementation, clinical decision support systems, and pay-for-quality programs on the performance of cardiovascular health clinical quality measures.
Demonstrated the value of health IT in improving quality of inpatient care for community-acquired pneumonia and emergency care of acute myocardial infarctions in rural hospitals.
