Dictated versus database-generated discharge summaries: a randomized clinical trial. (1/2705)BACKGROUND: Hospital discharge summaries communicate information necessary for continuing patient care. They are most commonly generated by voice dictation and are often of poor quality. The objective of this study was to compare discharge summaries created by voice dictation with those generated from a clinical database. METHODS: A randomized clinical trial was performed in which discharge summaries for patients discharged from a general internal medicine service at a tertiary care teaching hospital in Ottawa were created by voice dictation (151 patients) or from a database (142 patients). Patients had been admitted between September 1996 and June 1997. The trial was preceded by a baseline cohort study in which all summaries were created by dictation. For the database group, information on forms completed by housestaff was entered into a database and collated into a discharge summary. For the dictation group, housestaff dictated narrative letters. The proportion of patients for whom a summary was generated within 4 weeks of discharge was recorded. Physicians receiving the summary rated its quality, completeness, organization and timeliness on a 100-mm visual analogue scale. Housestaff preference was also determined. RESULTS: Patients in the database group and the dictation group were similar. A summary was much more likely to be generated within 4 weeks of discharge for patients in the database group than for those in the dictation group (113 [79.6%] v. 86 [57.0%]; p < 0.001). Summary quality was similar (mean rating 72.7 [standard deviation (SD) 19.3] v. 74.9 [SD 16.6]), as were assessments of completeness (73.4 [SD 19.8] v. 78.2 [SD 14.9]), organization (77.4 [SD 16.3] v. 79.3 [SD 17.2]) and timeliness (70.3 [SD 21.9] v. 66.2 [SD 25.6]). Many information items of interest were more likely to be included in the database-generated summaries. The database system created summaries faster and was preferred by housestaff. Dictated summaries in the baseline and randomized studies were similar, which indicated that the control group was not substantially different from the baseline cohort. INTERPRETATION: The database system significantly increased the likelihood that a discharge summary was created. Housestaff preferred the database system for summary generation. Physicians thought that the quality of summaries generated by the 2 methods was similar. The use of computer databases to create hospital discharge summaries is promising and merits further study and refinement. (+info)
Record-linkage for pharmacovigilance in Scotland. (2/2705)Record-linkage is the linkage of patient-specific information that is stored separately. Recent advances in computerization have meant that record-linkage techniques in medical research are increasingly being used and refined. In particular, they have made a significant contribution to pharmacovigilance, which involves linking drug exposure to outcomes data. In this article, the contribution of record-linkage in Scotland to medical research is described. The two organizations that utilize record-linkage techniques are the Medicines Monitoring Unit (MEMO) of the University of Dundee and the Information and Statistics Division (ISD) of the NHS in Scotland. Pharmacovigilance is MEMO's main concern (using data from the Tayside region of Scotland), while ISD link health care datasets for Scotland for general health care research. The experience of the two groups is now being combined to carry out drug safety studies in the entire population of Scotland. (+info)
Measuring the effects of reminders for outpatient influenza immunizations at the point of clinical opportunity. (3/2705)OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the influence of computer-based reminders about influenza vaccination on the behavior of individual clinicians at each clinical opportunity. DESIGN: The authors conducted a prospective study of clinicians' influenza vaccination behavior over four years. Approximately one half of the clinicians in an internal medicine clinic used a computer-based patient record system (CPR users) that generated computer-based reminders. The other clinicians used traditional paper records (PR users). MEASUREMENTS: Each nonacute visit by a patient eligible for an influenza vaccination was considered an opportunity for intervention. Patients who had contraindications for vaccination were excluded. Compliance with the guideline was defined as documentation that a clinician ordered the vaccine, counseled the patient about the vaccine, offered the vaccine to a patient who declined it, or verified that the patient had received the vaccine elsewhere. The authors calculated the proportion of opportunities on which each clinician documented action in the CPR and PR user groups. RESULTS: The CPR and PR user groups had different baseline compliance rates (40.1 and 27.9 per cent, respectively; P<0.05). Both rates remained stable during a two-year baseline period (P = 0.34 and P = 0.47, respectively). The compliance rates in the CPR user group increased 78 per cent from baseline (P<0.001), whereas the rates for the PR user group did not change significantly (P = 0.18). CONCLUSIONS: Clinicians who used a CPR with reminders had higher rates of documentation of compliance with influenza-vaccination guidelines than did those who used a paper record. Measurements of individual clinician behavior at the point of each clinical opportunity can provide precise evaluation of interventions that are designed to improve compliance with guidelines.

The limited use of digital ink in the private-sector primary care physician's office. (4/2705)Two of the greatest obstacles to the implementation of the standardized electronic medical record are physician and staff acceptance and the development of a complete standardized medical vocabulary. Physicians have found the familiar desktop computer environment cumbersome in the examination room and the coding and hierarchic structure of existing vocabulary inadequate. The author recommends the use of digital ink, the graphic form of the pen computer, in telephone messaging and as a supplement in the examination room encounter note. A key concept in this paper is that the development of a standard electronic medical record cannot occur without the thorough evaluation of the office environment and physicians' concerns. This approach reveals a role for digital ink in telephone messaging and as a supplement to the encounter note. It is hoped that the utilization of digital ink will foster greater physician participation in the development of the electronic medical record. (+info)
General practice registration networks in the Netherlands: a brief report. (5/2705)In the Netherlands, several general practice registrations exist. Groups of general practitioners register elements of patient care according to agreed-upon criteria, and these data are collected in a central database. By means of a questionnaire the authors interviewed the managers of all nine computerized registration networks extensively about the possibilities and limitations of their registration. In addition, respondents answered some questions with data from the central database of their network. Various items are collected by nearly all the registration networks, while other items are collected by only one network. Answering questions with data from the central database turned out to be difficult. Organization and manpower are the main obstacles. (+info)
Using a multidisciplinary automated discharge summary process to improve information management across the system. (6/2705)We developed and implemented an automated discharge summary process in a regional integrated managed health system. This multidisciplinary effort was initiated to correct deficits in patients' medical record documentation involving discharge instructions, follow-up care, discharge medications, and patient education. The results of our team effort included an automated summary that compiles data entered via computer pathways during a patient's hospitalization. All information regarding admission medications, patient education, follow-up care, referral at discharge activities, diagnosis, and other pertinent medical events are formulated into the discharge summary, discharge orders, patient discharge instructions, and transfer information as applicable. This communication process has tremendously enhanced information management across the system and helps us maintain complete and thorough documentation in patient records. (+info)
Improving clinician acceptance and use of computerized documentation of coded diagnosis. (7/2705)After the Northwest Division of Kaiser Permanente implemented EpicCare, a comprehensive electronic medical record, clinicians were required to directly document orders and diagnoses on this computerized system, a task they found difficult and time consuming. We analyzed the sources of this problem to improve the process and increase its acceptance by clinicians. One problem was the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) as our coding scheme, even though ICD-9 is not a complete nomenclature of diseases and using it as such creates difficulties. In addition, the synonym list we used had some inaccurate associations, contributing to clinician frustration. Furthermore, the initial software program contained no adequate mechanism for adding qualifying comments or preferred terminology. We sought to address all these issues. Strategies included adjusting the available coding choices and descriptions and modifying the medical record software. In addition, the software vendor developed a utility that allows clinicians to replace the ICD-9 description with their own preferred terminology while preserving the ICD-9 code. We present an evaluation of this utility. (+info)
The validity and usage of resource utilization data among a group of primary care physicians. (8/2705)The use of individual resource utilization scores to compare primary care physicians (PCPs) has become more commonplace as managed care organizations (MCOs) increase their penetration into the US healthcare market. This study looks at the validity and usage of these scores among a group of PCPs within a multispecialty clinic that is part of an integrated managed care network. Personal interviews were conducted with PCPs; and reviews were done of the practice site paper charts, the computerized visit record system of the clinic and affiliated hospital, and the MCO-supplied resource utilization data on the 25 patients of each PCP on whom the most healthcare dollars were spent in 1995. As of October 1996, few PCPs had done more than a cursory review of their resource utilization data. None had identified the patients who use the most resources or developed any methods to proactively manage those patients with a history of high utilization. The clinic's communication systems alerted the PCPs less than 50% of the time when patients for whom they were responsible had high utilization of services. Patients appeared to be assigned to the incorrect PCP more than 20% of the time. All players in this managed care network--PCPs, clinic administration, and the MCO--must work together to improve the current system before resource utilization data are considered valid and are incorporated more fully into clinical practice.

Background: In 2006, we were funded by the US National Institutes of Health to implement a study of tuberculosis epidemiology in Peru. The study required a secure information system to manage data from a target goal of 16,000 subjects who needed to be followed for at least one year. With previous experience in the development and deployment of web-based medical record systems for TB treatment in Peru, we chose to use the OpenMRS open source electronic medical record system platform to develop the study information system. Supported by a core technical and management team and a large and growing worldwide community, OpenMRS is now being used in more than 40 developing countries. We adapted the OpenMRS platform to better support foreign languages. We added a new module to support double data entry, linkage to an existing laboratory information system, automatic upload of GPS data from handheld devices, and better security and auditing of data changes. We added new reports for study managers, and ...

Making a Powerful Connection: The Health of the Public and the National Information Infrastructure
Not surprisingly, these same factors are also prerequisites for effective computer-based patient record systems.. 4.2 Communication. Whether it be through written text, video, radio, e-mail, telephone hotlines, clearinghouses, or other information resources, communication is the sine qua non for informing, educating, and empowering people about public health problems and health issues in general. The targets for public health communications are quite diverse. For example, consumers need to know about personal behaviors that pose risks to health, and where to find services that can support difficult changes in lifestyle. Potential communicable disease contacts need to be informed about risks so that they can seek out diagnosis and treatment. Practitioners need to be alerted to emerging infectious and environmental threats to health so that they can target preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic services. And the media needs to learn about health problems in the community so that they, in turn, ...

EMR in the Hundred Days
Should Marks list of fast-track public investments for President Obamas Hundred Days include a start on the national electronic medical records system?. At first sight, no.. The main lesson from the near-fiasco in England is that you have to plan it right and get stakeholders on board. According the British National Audit Office, the cost of the programme is now under control. This has stabilised at £12.7bn in 2004 prices, but full implementation has slipped to 2014.. A close look at the NAO report suggests a more complicated picture. The main delay is in rolling out the core local medical records systems for GPs and hospitals. One key software suite had not yet been delivered by mid-2008. The US will presumably adopt a more decentralised approach based on common standards and software certification, which will take even more planning and consultation. It doesnt make sense to throw money at records systems until you have the standards in place.. But other parts of the English NHS project ...
Retention of medical records
Disposal of medical records. An efficient records management system should include arrangements for archiving or destroying dormant records in order to make space available for new records, particularly in the case of paper records. Records held electronically are covered by the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act, which specifies that personal information must be deleted or destroyed when it becomes obsolete.. A policy for disposal of records should include clear guidelines on record retention and procedures for identifying records due for disposal. The records should be examined first to ensure that they are suitable for disposal and an authority to dispose should be signed by a designated member of staff.. The records must be stored or destroyed in a safe, secure manner. If records are to be destroyed, paper records should be shredded or incinerated. CDs, DVDs, hard disks and other forms of electronic storage should be overwritten with random data or physically destroyed.. Be wary ...

Attitudes toward inter-hospital electronic patient record exchange: discrepancies among physicians, medical record staff, and...
In this era of ubiquitous information, patient record exchange among hospitals still has technological and individual barriers including resistance to information sharing. Most research on user attitudes has been limited to one type of user or aspect. Because few analyses of attitudes toward electronic patient records (EPRs) have been conducted, understanding the attitudes among different users in multiple aspects is crucial to user acceptance. This proof-of-concept study investigated the attitudes of users toward the inter-hospital EPR exchange system implemented nationwide and focused on discrepant behavioral intentions among three user groups. The system was designed by combining a Health Level 7-based protocol, object-relational mapping, and other medical informatics techniques to ensure interoperability in realizing patient-centered practices. After implementation, three user-specific questionnaires for physicians, medical record staff, and patients were administered, with a 70 % response rate. The
Opting out of the latest NHS data grab | Light Blue Touchpaper
So assuming your England GP had electronic records, I would imagine the scenario that data is entered to say you are leaving, and if where you go to can claim you and also uses GP2GP then they get your e-history, with some caveats, for example: Pathology results more than one year old, that remain unfiled or unactioned, are not transmitted in the GP2GP record transfer. The clinical responsibility still remains with the previous practice.. Any paper records transfer would still work I imagine, as it did. But you would be best asking your practice(s) since there can be a number of different scenarios, for your own particular situation.. theotherrob: assuming this is for paper records if you have permanently left the UK, your GP health records will be sent to your NHS England Local Area Team and your hospital records will either be stored at the hospital that you attended or sent to a local archive. Following treatment, hospital records are kept for a minimum of eight years and GP records for a ...
NewYork-Presbyterian Queens - Electronic Medical Records Boost Diabetes Care
Proponents of EMRs say they make it easier for doctors to communicate with patients and with one another. The records are also supposed to cut down on medical errors by doing things like providing warnings about medication allergies.. Dr. Cebul acknowledged that his study didnt prove that electronic records directly improved patient care; other factors could explain the difference. Its possible, for instance, that the clinics with paper records simply provided worse care in general -- their decision to not move to electronic records could be a sign that theyre behind the times in other ways.. And clinics often failed to fully follow guidelines about care for people with diabetes even when they used electronic records.. ...

The Wired Practice: September 2010
How does the paper chart office handle these tasks? In all but the smallest practices these tasks are each handled by different individuals. Every step requires access to the paper chart, which can only be in one place at a time. The chart wont be available to anyone for at least 24 hours until the transcription comes back and is filed. The paper chart office must therefore accept the slowness and inefficiency of sequential processing. Workflow is defined by stacks of paper charts - stacks waiting for transcription, stacks waiting for labs, waiting for scheduling, etc. And if the patient scheduled for surgery calls with a question…what stack is the chart in? Will the chart find its way back to the right stack after the phone call is handled? Everyone competes with each other for access to the chart. Not only is the process slow and inefficient, it carries a high risk of workflow failure ...

Boosting Income During the COVID-19 Crisis - Renal and Urology News
An obvious way to increase a groups income is to see more patients. But as practices reopen, some patients may have gone to other physicians or opted to forgo nonemergent services. All offices have an inventory of charts from patients who have not been seen at the practice recently, Zaenger said. Staff should follow up with these patients to make appointments or at least to stay connected. How many orthopedic doctors call parents of kids who had a fractured forearm to see how they are doing? he asked. This is a great time to build goodwill and add to physician presence. In addition, practices should review referral networks and touch base with physicians who had been a regular source of referrals. Many electronic medical record systems track who is sending patients to a practice. Practices that find out providers who used to give referrals are not doing so any longer should call those providers to let them know they are still taking new patients, Zaenger said.

Electronic medical records: a promising prognosis
Fewer than one in five U.S. physicians use electronic medical records (EMRs) to track their patients histories, even though such products offer benefits to stakeholders all along the healthcare delivery chain. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a national health information network could save $140 billion per year by improving care and reducing costs.
The safety implications of missed test results for hospitalised patients: a systematic review | BMJ Quality & Safety
Only two studies described complete electronic test management systems3 20 where tests were ordered on-line and results reported electronically with no paper used. The rate of missed results was high in both these studies, although it could be argued that the technology made the problem more explicit and easier to measure. Rates were also high in hospitals which used entirely paper-based systems4 36 and in those which used a mixture of paper and electronic systems.32 35 There was no evidence of any link between the system used and the extent of missed test results. Other studies have shown that the use of hybrid paper and electronic clinical information systems is associated with errors and duplications, with complete electronic systems showing fewer errors.13 41 A study of outpatient test results reported that the use of a partial electronic medical record (paper-based progress notes and electronic test results or vice versa) was associated with higher rates of failure to inform patients of ...

N2 - Electronic health records are gradually replacing conventional paper-based health records. For a doctor, it is a working instrument, which can significantly reduce the time spent on paper work. At the same time, patients can benefit from accessing the electronic health records even though they usually do not have a medical background. Therefore, when specifying a graphical user interface (GUI) it is necessary to take into account the requirements of the different users: e.g. the functionality for the doctors and the presentation of data in an understandable manner for the patients. The study aims to review and analyze metrics used to evaluate the usability of user interfaces in health information systems. A literature review was performed to identify existing metrics.

DMOZ - Health: Medicine: Informatics: Products and Services: Electronic Health Records
Sites listed here relate to structure, concepts and methodologies. An Electronic Health Record Architectures (EHRA) is an information model or framework for the construction of electronic health records. It has been defined by the European Standards Committee (CEN). An EHR Architecture is a model of the generic features necessary in any electronic healthcare record in order that the record may be communicable, complete, a useful and effective ethico-legal record of care, and may retain integrity across systems, countries, and time. The Architecture does not prescribe or dictate what anyone stores in their healthcare records. Nor does it prescribe or dictate how any electronic healthcare record system is implemented. It places no restrictions on the types of data which can appear in the record, including those which have no counterpart in paper records. From http://www.gehr.org/gpcgglossary.pdf Viewed 22/12/2003

The Rise of Electronic Health Record Adoption Among Family Physicians | Annals of Family Medicine
The Rise of Electronic Health Record Adoption Among Family Physicians. Imam M. Xierali , and colleagues Background Electronic health records (EHRs) are generally expected to improve the quality of health care, lower health care costs, and provide patients with more involvement in their own health care. Achieving these benefits, however, depends on clinicians use of the technology. This study estimates uptake of EHRs by US family physicians and other outpatient doctors, and looks at EHR adoption by state. What This Study Found Adoption of electronic health records by family physicians has doubled since 2005, reaching 68 percent nationally in 2011. Family physicians are adopting electronic health records at a higher rate than other office-based physicians and are likely to exceed 80 percent penetration by 2013 if the current trend continues. State-level analysis, however, indicates significant variation in EHR adoption, from a low of 44 percent in North Carolina to a high of 88 percent in Hawaii, ...

The papers in this issue by Desai et al1 on use of electronic health records (EHRs) to form disease registries and Kahn et al2 regarding quality control in the EHR both discuss important and timely issues. Use of frameworks, strategies, and recommendations provided in these articles will go a long way toward improving the quality of EHR data for purposes ranging from local quality improvement to comparative studies and national population-based research.. This is clearly a case where the devil is in the details, as is well documented in examples provided in these articles. The data quality and checking issues and multiple decisions that need to be made in creating registries are paramount, because electronic data are not inherently better or worse than paper records. As often happens, debates have often focused on the overall advantages and disadvantages of EHR data, instead of on the important subissues discussed in these papers, such as the purpose for which the data are intended, whether ...
