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.
This research will use digital health tools leveraging patient-reported outcomes and data from electronic health records to engage individuals with multiple chronic conditions to improve understanding of individualized risk of adverse events during care transitions.
This research will evaluate the use of WiseApp, a medication tracker mobile app linked to a smart pill box aimed at improving medication adherence in those living with HIV, focusing on Latinos in the United States and the Dominican Republic.
This research will examine the factors affecting cancer patients’ use of an electronic patient safety event reporting system to communicate adverse medication-related events to their care team.
This research will study the implementation of Telehealth Education for Asthma Connecting Hospital and Home (TEACHH), a novel intervention designed to provide an effective asthma educational platform appropriate for all health literacy levels. The intervention includes initial instruction in the hospital and reinforcement at home using virtual visits to reduce barriers to self-management support for children who are hospitalized due to asthma.
This research aims to develop and test a voice-activated smart system that will promote self-management and provide coping tools, motivation, and social support to help older adults with multiple chronic conditions.
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.
This research will support the development and testing of two electronic care plan applications and implementation guide for managing persons with chronic kidney disease and at least one additional chronic condition.
This research will identify and characterize the factors differentiating patient portal users from non-users and develop guidelines to optimize portal design and development for population subgroups.
This research will develop an information technology and implementation strategy for using patient-reported outcomes in primary care settings caring for diverse patients with multiple chronic conditions.
