The prospect of assisting disabled patients by translating neural activity from the brain into control signals for prosthetic devices, has flourished in recent years. Current systems rely on neural activity present during natural arm movements. We propose here that neural activity present before or even without natural arm movements can provide an(More)
This article describes the patient-centered Scalable National Network for Effectiveness Research (pSCANNER), which is part of the recently formed PCORnet, a national network composed of learning healthcare systems and patient-powered research networks funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). It is designed to be a(More)
Large-scale comparative effectiveness research studies require detailed clinical data collected across disparate clinical practice settings and institutions. Distributed research networks (DRNs) have been promoted as one approach to wide-scale data sharing that enables data sharing organizations to retain local data ownership and access control. Despite(More)
IMPORTANCE "Nudges" that influence decision making through subtle cognitive mechanisms have been shown to be highly effective in a wide range of applications, but there have been few experiments to improve clinical practice. OBJECTIVE To investigate the use of a behavioral "nudge" based on the principle of public commitment in encouraging the judicious(More)
INTRODUCTION Poor data quality can be a serious threat to the validity and generalizability of clinical research findings. The growing availability of electronic administrative and clinical data is accompanied by a growing concern about the quality of these data for observational research and other analytic purposes. Currently, there are no widely accepted(More)
BACKGROUND Clinicians frequently prescribe antibiotics inappropriately for acute respiratory infections (ARIs). Our objective was to test information technology-enabled behavioral interventions to reduce inappropriate antibiotic prescribing for ARIs in a randomized controlled pilot test trial. METHODS Primary care clinicians were randomized in a 2 × 2 × 2(More)
