Clinical trials are essential to the progress of medical science. Physician participation in trial recruitment is vital, but most do not participate. Few approaches to improve physician participation in trial recruitment have been described or proven successful. Previously described approaches have largely relied on locally developed technology or been(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the potential of de-identified clinical data from multiple healthcare systems using different electronic health records (EHR) to be efficiently used for very large retrospective cohort studies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data of 959 030 patients, pooled from multiple different healthcare systems with distinct EHR, were obtained. Data(More)
For more than a decade, the Beers criteria have identified specific medications that should generally be avoided in the geriatric population. Studies that have shown high prevalence rates of these potentially inappropriate medications have used disparate methodologies to identify these medications and hence are difficult to replicate and generalize. In an(More)
Physicians play a vital role in the clinical trial recruitment process, but most do not participate. We developed a new Clinical Trial Alert (CTA) system and studied its effect on a cohort of physicians across a health system. Following this study, we surveyed our physician subjects. Their responses offer insights into the CTA's utility, their attitudes(More)
Insurance denials delay payments for tests to medical institutions and can decrease patient satisfaction due to unexpected billing. Our institution utilizes an ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) for routine clinical care that includes computerized physician order entry (CPOE). At our institution as well as others, considerable cost is associated with(More)
Many institutions have developed mechanisms to measure quality indicators for their physician providers based on commonly reported process measures and outcomes. In preparation for interventions to improve quality, we discuss a model that we created to extend our institutions algorithms and electronic database queries against our electronic health record's(More)
Health care professionals suffer from information overload and struggle to filter evidence relevant to their field. There is a need for solution that facilitates filtering and delivery of information specifically tailored to the needs of researchers and practitioners, and provides an opportunity to efficiently critique and share evidence- based articles.(More)
Nowadays, health care institutions are increasingly challenged with the need for perennial workforce training and documentation for regulatory compliance. Hence, more and more institutions are looking at online training solutions to train their workforce. We developed and validated a brief instrument designed to measure user satisfaction with online(More)
