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.
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.

Link to the webinar series on Academy HealthThe EDM Forum webinar series Better Evidence. Better Decisions. Better Health. will share tools and methods being developed and used in learning health systems to address challenges in achieving better patient care. A series of ‘upstream’ uses of lessons learned from patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) will be featured, including approaches to develop and test e-Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs), clinical decision support (CDS), and evaluate the evidentiary needs of payers and purchasers.
