This project built and evaluated SurvivorLink, an information technology system available via the Web that provides information on the life-long health care needs of childhood cancer survivors.
This project demonstrated the ability of an interoperable health information exchange and an electronic health record to provide useful quality and safety measures for the vulnerable populations served by two community health center clinics.
Implemented a series of new health information technologies in carefully staged processes over 2 years to include an Inpatient Pharmacy System, Electronic Medication Administration Record, Bar Coding System, and a CPOE System; evaluated the impact of these systems on safety, quality, and efficiency.
Improving Asthma Care in an Integrated Safety Net through a Commercially Available Electronic Medical Record
The overarching goal for this project is to improve the quality and patient-centeredness of asthmatic ambulatory care for children and adults.
Participation in a virtual obesity health collaborative that included training in obesity guidelines, support, and use of the computer system HeartSmartKids™, improved adherence to guidelines; had a positive impact on parent’s perception of the health care provider, as well as their ability to change their child’s diet; and had an overall improvement in chronic care model elements.
The project sought to determine if a computer decision support system integrated with routine care could improve standardized developmental screening during early well-child visits and surveillance for developmental disabilities at all pediatric visits.
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.
Developed, implemented, and evaluated a cooperative effort for using health IT to facilitate a continuum of appropriate medical and developmental care, from the time infants are admitted to Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs), through the transition process to community-based health care services for infants most at-risk for long-term neurodevelopmental problems.
