This research will refine an existing interoperable, patient-facing blood pressure control tool--the Collaboration Oriented Approach to Controlling High Blood Pressure (COACH) application--evaluate its implementation into three diverse clinical settings; conduct a randomized trial to assess its impact on lowering blood pressure; and develop a shareable, interoperable mechanism to aid in the dissemination of patient-facing clinical decision support tools.

Implementing USPSTF Recommendations for Breast Cancer Screening and Prevention by Integrating Clinical Decision Support Tools with the Electronic Health Record
This study will integrate a previously piloted risk tool and clinical decision aid, MammoScreen, with an EHR to provide personalized decision support for both patients and clinicians to improve quality of care for women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.
Integrating Patient-Generated Digital Health Data into Electronic Health Records in Ambulatory Care Settings
The overall goal of the research is to advance the integration and use of patient-generated digital health data in ambulatory care settings.
Translating Hypertension Guidelines into Practice: Development of Interoperable Clinical Decision Support
This research developed the Collaboration Oriented Approach for Controlling HBP (COACH) tool that incorporates high blood pressure (HBP) recommendations along with known best practices for patient engagement for management of HBP.
Electronic Health Record Solutions for Accurate Reporting of Data on Interprofessional Intensive Care Unit Rounds
This research identified the data domains at greatest risk of communication errors during intensive care unit (ICU) patient rounds, developed the ability to conduct simulated ICU rounds for research and training, and found that there is a need for real-time simultaneous reviewing of data by all members of the rounding team to reduce communication errors.
The research team identified key information needs for clinicians providing and coordinating care for patients with complex medical, social, and economic needs, and developed and tested design principles for electronic health record systems to support social determinants of health data capture and clinical decision support.
This is an interview guide designed to be conducted with nurses in an ambulatory setting. The tool includes questions to assess user's perceptions of electronic health records.
This project conducted a large scale systematic review to synthesize existing evidence on health information exchange use and effectiveness.
