Better Evidence. Better Decisions. Better Health: Clinical Decision Support and User Experience

An Academy Health Webinar

Bringing health IT to scale in ways that promote patient-centered care is a critical goal for the next stage of technology implementation in health settings. Clinical decision support (CDS) offers promising opportunities to integrate new evidence into electronic health records in hospital and clinics nationwide. Similarly, user-experience and user-centered design promote strategies to ensure health IT is useful and supports care, rather than creating technical roadblocks.

This webinar will engage leaders and innovators developing and deploying user-friendly health IT interfaces and CDS tools. Moderated by Thomas McGinn, M.D., M.P.H., Chair of Medicine at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, and Guest Editor for the 2015 eGEMs special issue “Evidence into Action: Improving user Interface to Improve Patient Outcomes,” the session will include notable examples of efforts to advance CDS and UX to improve patient experiences and outcomes.

Learning Objectives

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Understand how an integrated, extensible, and workflow-aware CDS tool is critical to enhancing patient-provider communications and influencing patient outcomes; 
  • Examine lessons learned from implementing nationally recognized recommendations to improve workflow, usability and patient safety through clinician-centered EHR design;
  • Discuss the challenges of implementing EHR and CDS tools into complex health care systems;
  • Identify promising practices to address these challenges.

Moderator: Thomas McGinn, M.D., M.P.H., Chair of Medicine at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, and Guest Editor for the 2015 eGEMs special issue “Evidence into Action: Improving user Interface to Improve Patient Outcomes”
