  23. 23. 24Asthma Detection: ObjectivesScreening:• Identify eligible patients early• Screen all ED patients automatically• Screen all ED patients in real-timeWorkflow Integration:• No additional data entry• Inform clinicians before initial evaluationGeneralizability:• Use only electronically recorded data• Use only common data elementsGoal  Alert clinicians about asthma guideline eligible patients Overcome behavioral barrier of initiating guideline
  24. 24. 25Asthma Detection SystemComputerizedNurse Triage• Coded chief complaint• Coded asthma history• Vital signs• DemographicsBilling RecordDatabase• Prior visit codes– In- or outpatient– ICD-9 = 493.*ElectronicMedical Record• Problem list (text)– History of asthma• Medication List (text)– Asthma medications
  25. 25. 26Asthma Detection SystemMethod: Developed & implemented a Bayesian Network
  26. 26. 27Prospective Evaluation• Study period: 4 weeks (Jan 27 - Feb 24, 2006)• 2,006 encounters; 153 asthma patients (7.6%)Sensitivity (fixed) Specificity Positive PV Negative PV90% 89.9% 42.5% 99.1%AUC = 97.1%(CI: 95.5% - 98.1%)

  39. 39. Lessons learnt40- “Is it an important problem?” (Don Lindberg)- Who cares?- A very long way from design, implementation,to evaluation.- “Get (institutional) support”- “If it can happen - it will” (Murphy)- People – Process – Technology: understand thedata, workflow and processes- “So what?” (Reed Gardner)- “Change management” (Nancy Lorenzi)- “Medical Informatics is a behavioral science.”(Homer Warner)… if ONE of them does not apply: Have Fun J
