UC Davis researchers have found that routine information blood pressure, respiratory rate, temperature and white blood cell count from the electronic health records EHRs of hospitalized patients can be used to predict the early stages of sepsis, a leading cause of death and hospitalization in the U.S. UC Davis researchers have shown that electronic health records can bring precision to the early identification of sepsis. Patients are rarely screened for blood lactate levels, because sepsis is very hard to distinguish in its early stages. Finding a precise and quick way to determine which patients are at high risk of developing the disease is critically important, sa...

When the first inklings of an electronic health record, or EHR, began to emerge in the 1960s, health care as a whole was on the verge of a revolution.

However, the problem wasn’t a data entry error; it was the ICD-9 diagnosis code on one system said caffeine addiction and on another said inhalant abuse. Those who use EHRs on a regular basis know that problems like similar ICD-9 codes and data entry errors are just the tip of the iceberg. The information cannot be passed reliably from system to system, therefore causing more errors that can result in harm. If the EHRs had...

... In an age of iPads, smartphones, and minute-by-minute Facebook updates, does a visit to your doctor's office sometimes seem like a trip back in time. Although many doctors still keep notes in files, more and more patients are seeing laptops instead of clipboards in the exam room. Understanding EHRs Electronic health records EHR also called electronic medical records EMR help patients as well as health professionals. So, for example, if you see a dermatologist and an asthma specialist in addition to your primary care doctor, all these doctors and their nurses and other caregivers will see the same records. If one doctor puts you on a new medication, the others get to see what it is which is good for you, because there's less chance of one doctor prescribing a medication that could adversely interact with another medication and cause problems. The Benefits of EHRs Because EHRs improve how well your doctors talk to each other and coordinate your treatment, they can enhance your overall care. If he or she or...

This disparate progression to higher blood pressure among blacks is at least one year earlier than whites.

Based on data gained from recent studies, electronic health record EHR technology is positioned to make a significant impact in our country’s ongoing battle against obesity. The United Health Foundation 2009 reported that the average American male gained 17.1 pounds between 1988 and 2008 and the average American female gained 15.4 pounds over the same period. The gradual fattening of the population has created a generation of Americans unaware of the fact that their lifestyle choices may be negatively impacting their health. Durant et al. A person with a body mass index BMI of over 30.0 is considered to be obese. Converting a BMI of 30.0 into a human representation is equivalent to that of a 5’ 10” male weighing 208 pounds. The next level, a 5’10” male weighing 244 pounds would fall into the morbidly obese category with a BMI of 35 or higher UHF, 2009 . Without some sort of flag or prompt it could be quite easy for a provider to overlook a patient’s incremental weight gain over an extended peri...

While there are many factors that go into an EHR software purchase, clinical trial participation deserves more consideration because: * Participating in these trials is easier through an EHR than through traditional paper means; * Using EHR data solves many of the major problems that clinical trials face; and * Purchasing an EHR creates a big ROI for physicians who decide to participate in clinical trials. EHR Software Facilitates Clinical Trial Participation According to Synergyst Research, only 10% of licensed physicians participate in clinical trials.

Electronic Health Medical Records. Two years ago in an address to Congress, President Obama declared his commitment to invest in electronic health records EHRs, saying he thought it was perhaps the best way to quickly improve the quality of American health care. Today, the New England Journal of Medicine released research authored by my colleagues and me at Better Health Greater Cleveland showing that physician practices that use electronic health records had significantly higher achievement and improvement in meeting standards of care and outcomes in diabetes than practices using paper records. Care is better: Nearly 51% of patients in EHR practices received care that met all of the endorsed standards. Outcomes are better: Nearly 44 % of patients in EHR practices met at least four of five outcome standards for diabetes. In the Cleveland area, the improvements we report would not have been possible without the more than 500 courageous doctors who stepped up and made the commitment to work directly with Better...

Themes that emerge throughout this report include: The indistinct boundaries between research and public health, quality improvement, and even clinical care; Challenges with conventional approaches to consent, including satisfying the disclosure requirements in contemporary observational research mechanisms to support patient choice regarding research use of their PHI; and. Historically, a number of secondary uses of information from the health record such as quality improvement, risk management, health systems improvement, infection control, and public health have been permitted without the requirement for any additional consent.

ACOs are networks of doctors and hospitals that share financial and medical responsibility for patients' care - exactly what the ACA encourages with Medicare, using bonuses for efficient and effective health care. So does the ACA mean we're in for the Kaiser-fication of health care - or should be. In an interview, Tyson says Kaiser's focus on affordability, technology, electronic health records and healing is something that all hospitals could learn from to meet the ACA's provisions. "In many ways, hospitals are still revenue centers," says Tyson, a nearly 30-year Kaiser veteran. Unlike hospitals that lose money when they discharge patients, Kais...

*  Preparing for an IT Talent Squeeze | Home Browser Title Tagline
The federal stimulus bill, which earmarked $19 billion for incentives related to computerization at hospitals and physician practices, also included financial penalties beginning in 2015. Just 9 percent of hospitals use electronic records on even a limited basis, according to a recent study. Based in recent discussions with IT experts, the debate seems to be less about the likelihood of a hiring surge and more about how many jobs it will fuel and how soon that surge will happen. Zywiak was among those who predicted that talented IT employees, including systems administrators, database engineers and security architects, will be recruited from other industries. Just 8 percent reported plans to add staff and 85 percent reported maintaining current levels, according to a spring survey of more than 1,400 chief information officers by Menlo Park, California-based staffing firm Robert Half Technology. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicted that the demand for network systems and data communications analysts would incr...

*  Health records initiatives suffer from old technologies, lack of transparency -- FCW
... Policy. The Hill. Agencies. COMMENTARY Beware of an impending e-records train wreck Use of outdated technologies could spell doom for HHS's health records By Michael C. Daconta Sep 14, 2010. I have some experience in health care information technology systems, having built an early stage telehealth system called Teleprovider in 1996. Thus, given my interest, I recently joined the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and have been trying to untangle the convoluted web of health care data standards. First, let’s examine the issues around outdated technology. On July 28, the Health and Human Services Department posted its final rule on the initial set of standards for electronic health records EHRs. So, whereas the majority of industry and government is moving as fast as possible to adopt those Web-based technologies, our so-called modernized health care system will need to stick with its hodgepodge of protocols. I am flabbergasted — a 1960s programming language as the future of health care...

The RCTs analyzed used different intervention strategies, including monitoring, self-management, and push or pull technologies.3 Thus, 13 ICTs included monitoring, self-management, and push technology; 14 involved some form of stand-alone "therapy" excluding screening and brief interventions ; and 6 included monitoring and therapy but no push technology. Thus, all 13 ICTs that used monitoring and push-based interventions found significant positive effects, whereas only 9 of 14 therapy interventions found positive effects. The six studies that included both monitoring and "therapy" but no push technology produced positive outcomes.

Few data support this claim. Principle 2: Health Information Technology HIT - The authors claim that "HIT enables providers and facilities to provide cardiovascular care and target intervention to patients in need of intensified care through registries and EHR electronic health records functions used at the point of care." While this sounds great, the data so far do not support this assumption when outcomes are actually measured: In fact, EMRs electronic medical records were a...

(3/1552) Three years experience with the implementation of a networked electronic medical record in Haiti.

Since 2005 we have been developing and implementing an electronic medical record (EMR) that supports both individual and population health care of HIV-infected patients in Haiti. Unreliable electrical power and network infrastructure, cultural differences, variable levels of experience and computer literacy, and the geographic dispersion of the team remain challenges, but the system is now implemented in about 40 sites nationwide providing antiretroviral therapy, and includes records for about 18,600 patients. The need to support country-wide monitoring and evaluation drove early architectural decisions to support linking systems under conditions of network uncertainty. We have found surprising end user acceptance of the system, with the adoption of interactive EMR usage exceeding our expectations and timeline.  (+info)

(5/1552) Unified Modeling Language (UML) for hospital-based cancer registration processes.

OBJECTIVE: Hospital-based cancer registry involves complex processing steps that span across multiple departments. In addition, management techniques and registration procedures differ depending on each medical facility. Establishing processes for hospital-based cancer registry requires clarifying specific functions and labor needed. In recent years, the business modeling technique, in which management evaluation is done by clearly spelling out processes and functions, has been applied to business process analysis. However, there are few analytical reports describing the applications of these concepts to medical-related work. In this study, we initially sought to model hospital-based cancer registration processes using the Unified Modeling Language (UML), to clarify functions. METHODS: The object of this study was the cancer registry of Osaka University Hospital. We organized the hospital-based cancer registration processes based on interview and observational surveys, and produced an As-Is model using activity, use-case, and class diagrams. After drafting every UML model, it was fed-back to practitioners to check its validity and improved. RESULTS: We were able to define the workflow for each department using activity diagrams. In addition, by using use-case diagrams we were able to classify each department within the hospital as a system, and thereby specify the core processes and staff that were responsible for each department. The class diagrams were effective in systematically organizing the information to be used for hospital-based cancer registries. Using UML modeling, hospital-based cancer registration processes were broadly classified into three separate processes, namely, registration tasks, quality control, and filing data. An additional 14 functions were also extracted. Many tasks take place within the hospital-based cancer registry office, but the process of providing information spans across multiple departments. Moreover, additional tasks were required in comparison to using a standardized system because the hospital-based cancer registration system was constructed with the pre-existing computer system in Osaka University Hospital. Difficulty of utilization of useful information for cancer registration processes was shown to increase the task workload. CONCLUSION: By using UML, we were able to clarify functions and extract the typical processes for a hospital-based cancer registry. Modeling can provide a basis of process analysis for establishment of efficient hospital-based cancer registration processes in each institute.  (+info)
