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.
This study looked at patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease who would benefit from treatment intensification.
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.
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.
This project worked on assessing, defining, demonstrating, and evaluating best practices for knowledge management and clinical decision support across multiple ambulatory care settings and electronic health record technology platforms.
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 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 project investigated and validated the prevalence and patterns of exception reporting among physicians participating in the Cardio-HIT collaborative, a practice-based research network. The overall objectives of this study were to assess the prevalence of exception reporting, document specific reasons for exceptions, evaluate the relative accuracy of reported exceptions, and identify the location of exception data in electronic health records.
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.
