This project evaluated a clinical quality management system using cognitive task analysis at three Federally Quality Health Centers.
This project utilized a diabetes registry in order to improve care delivery and the quality of care for diabetics at eight federally-qualified community health centers.
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.
Improving the Quality of Pediatric Emergency Care Using an Electronic Medical Record Registry and Clinician Feedback
This project developed an emergency care data registry for pediatric patients using electronic health records and assessed change in benchmarks for quality care measures.
Expanded an established Web-based, interactive Diabetes Mellitus Registry that provides patient histories and needed tests at the point of care among public, private, and not-for-profit health care providers; also tracks the diabetes population to identify trends in key indicators of care.
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.
The Rhode Island Statewide Health Information Exchange, known as Currentcare, facilitated the development of the capability to deploy health information infrastructure at a statewide scale.
Develops a patient Master Visit Registry (MVR), addressing the need for better information sharing among clinical organizations and enhancing their ability to give patients continuous high-quality care when they change providers. The MVR will expand upon an existing patient record-keeping system, while improving local handling and exchange of records.
This project evaluated the cost of cancer screening reminders either through an automated, escalating outreach program alone or an extension of that program.
The purpose of this project was to develop and propose a research agenda for how industrial and systems engineering may support health services research and health care delivery redesign, with a focus on health information technology.
