More effective use of IT is recommended in integrating point of care access to (e.g., Committee on Quality Health Care in America) :
Health literature and evidence-based guidelines;
Computerized clinical data;
Computerized decision support (CDS) systems;
Automation of decisions to reduce errors;
Electronic communication among providers and patients into practice.
Computerized CDS can improve clinician decision making and support adherence to evidence-based guidelines.
(e.g., Reid et al., 2005; Doebbeling et al., JGIM, 2006; Bates et al. JAMIA 1999 & 2001)
Colorectal cancer screening focus: high disease burden, relatively low screening rates, strong evidence for screening effectiveness
Failure to optimally integrate CDS into workflow has resulted in inconsistent and incomplete implementation strategies.
(e.g., Doebbeling et al., JGIM 2006; Garg et al., JAMA, 2005)
Conceptual Framework : Sociotechnical Systems Theory to guide identification of factors important in better understanding how to best develop and implement CDS Sociotechnical Framework
Specific Aim 1: Identify key approaches to CDS development for colorectal cancer screening at two VAMC sites and two nationally recognized non-VA sites, for effective CDS integration into clinical workflow.
H1: Effective colorectal cancer screening CDS integration into workflow requires system redesign, human factors assessment, pilot testing, use at the bedside or patient room, and provider training and support.
Specific Aim 2: Develop and test CDS design alternatives for improved integration into clinical workflow through a controlled simulation study and subsequent implementation.
H2: Providers will experience improved efficiency and usability, and decreased workload when using design alternatives for colorectal cancer screening CDS compared to current CDS.
Key Informant Interviews of site-specific best-practices for integration of colorectal cancer screening CDS into workflow Direct Observation of colorectal cancer screening CDS for barriers and facilitators to workflow integration Implementation in primary care clinic after simulation study Rapid Prototyping of CDS design alternatives based on Phase 1 findings Simulation Study to test impact of CDS design alternatives on efficiency, usability, and workload Evaluation in primary care clinic after simulation study Figure. Project Overview Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3
Proposal includes 3 of the top 4 leaders in demonstrating improved quality and efficiency using health IT: VA, Regenstrief, Partners Healthcare (Chaudhry et al., Annals of Internal Medicine, 2006)
Each of these 3 organizations use very different designs and approaches for CDS with the electronic medical record
These differences all impact workflow integration
Unique context of each organization vs. generalizable design principles
