This project conducted a phased implementation of selected ambulatory care health information technology systems designed to improve chronic disease performance indicators and patient-provider communication.
This project developed a new application called the Integrated Medication Manager (IMM), which presents to clinicians an integrated representation of a patient’s status and care process over time.
Assesses the value of health IT to clinicians through creation of CDSS tools integrated with clinical documentation workflow and physician performance feedback, its impact on clinical decision support and quality assessment, and its cost-effectiveness.
This study compared the use of home blood pressure monitoring to an eHealth blood pressure system of care that integrated the former into a provider’s electronic medical record via a Web portal.
This project deployed new functionality that allowed clinicians to view ‘real time’ measures of the delivery of clinical preventive services and added patient specific alerts and ‘one click’ options to act on missed opportunities for followup care.
This project extensively tested, refined, and evaluated a tool called the Hazard Manager, a tool designed to support the characterization of hazards and communicate their potential and actual causality in adverse effects.
This project implemented a personal health record and population-level dashboard to assist lay health workers in a church-based setting with the goal of improving blood pressure control, and succeeded in increasing the number of participant physician visits and total fruit and vegetable consumption.
The project developed and pilot-tested a Web-based implementation of a Team Resource Management (TRM) intervention aimed at improving medication safety in primary care.
This project developed and tested an interactive voice response supported care transition coaching intervention, e-Coach, that supports medical patients with complex conditions as they transition from hospital to home-based care.
This project designed and pilot tested a dashboard that synthesizes patient data from a registry and found that it decreased the average monthly visit no-show rate.
