BACKGROUND Successful subspecialty referrals require considerable coordination and interactive communication among the primary care provider (PCP), the subspecialist, and the patient, which may be challenging in the outpatient setting. Even when referrals are facilitated by electronic health records (EHRs) (i.e., e-referrals), lapses in patient follow-up(More)
This paper explores whether an individual’s news source can explain their attitudes on immigration. We focus on the Spanish-speaking population in the U.S., since they have the option of accessing their news in English, Spanish or in both languages. Our audience influence hypothesis predicts that Spanish-language news will cover immigration in a more(More)
BACKGROUND Low adherence to chronic kidney disease (CKD) guidelines may be due to unrecognized CKD and lack of guideline awareness on the part of providers. The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of provider education and access to a CKD registry on guideline adherence. METHODS We conducted a cluster randomized controlled trial at the Louis(More)
BACKGROUND Notifying clinicians about abnormal test results through electronic health record (EHR) -based "alert" notifications may not always lead to timely follow-up of patients. We sought to understand barriers, facilitators, and potential interventions for safe and effective management of abnormal test result delivery via electronic alerts. METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND Continuous quality improvement (QI) is important to primary care in general, and is emphasized as a key tenet of the primary care patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model. While team-based QI activities within the PCMH model are expected, concerns exist as to how successful efforts have been at implementing team-driven QI projects. OBJECTIVE(More)
In this paper, novel blind identification and compensation architectures for the frequency response mismatch of a two-channel time-interleaved analog-to-digital-converter (TI-ADC) are proposed. First, detailed modeling of the frequency response mismatch is carried out, establishing a direct connection and similarity to the well-known in-phase/quadrature(More)
This paper proposes a fully digital post-processing solution for cancelling nonlinear distortion and mirror-frequency interference in wideband direct-conversion receivers (DCRs). Favorable cost, integrability, and power efficiency have made DCRs a popular choice in communication systems. It is also an emerging trend in radar systems since digital(More)
