Researchers successfully developed Decision Precision+, a shared decision making tool that increases appropriate screening for lung cancer, as a SMART on FHIR app that pulls data from the electronic health record to enable providers to have an individualized risk-benefit discussion with at-risk patients on whether lung cancer screening is right for them.
This research developed DDInteract, a patient-facing shared decision making (SDM) tool that uses interactive decision dashboards to graphically communicate risks and decision options, supporting SDM for patients and providers regarding drug-drug interactions.
This research implemented a clinical decision support tool to identify patients at risk for a life-threatening, uncommon cardiac arrhythmia.
From Emergency to Community: Implementing a Social Needs Assessment and Referral Infrastructure Using Health Information Technology
This research assessed the use of an electronic social needs screening tool integrated into the workflow of an emergency department setting that facilitated referrals for those in need, and found that although only a small subset of patients expressing need received referrals, the strategy showed promise to monitor population health post-discharge.
Understanding Complex Clinical Decision Tasks for Better Health Information Technology System Design
This study examined clinical decision task complexity to guide the design of innovative clinical decision support to for high-level reasoning in complex decision tasks.
