Clinical Decision Support and Care Plan Adjustment for Social Risks

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Jodie Albert 0 347

When clinical teams have information on patients' social risks (adverse social determinants of health), they can make care plan adjustments to account for those risks, e.g., by prescribing lower-cost medications. Come hear about a team that worked with stakeholders from primary care community health centers to develop a set of EHR-based tools intended to support making such adjustments in care for patients with hypertension and / or diabetes. This talk will describe the tool development process, results from pilot testing the tools in three clinic sites, and how the tools were revised in response to pilot process learnings.

Preparing for Patient Level Reporting: UDS+ and More

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Jodie Albert 0 443

Data standards initiatives and the Uniform Data Set (UDS) Modernization initiative aim to reduce reporting burden through easing data exchange, improve data quality, and better measure services and outcomes. In the coming years, health centers will be expected to use FHIR, a data standard that is becoming more common, to submit UDS+ along with other information (such as public health reporting). Experts involved in preparation for UDS+ and similar initiatives with CMS will join to share their experiences and reflect on what health centers should be aware of as they prepare for the future of UDS and other reporting

More than a Database: Understanding Community Resource Referrals within a Broader Framework

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Jodie Albert 0 1032

Addressing patients’ social determinants of health via community resource referrals has historically primarily been the domain of social workers and information and referral specialists; however, community resource referral technology platforms have more recently entered the market. The process surrounding these community resource referrals and the role of technologies within it has not been fully accounted for just yet. Based on focus groups with  healthcare providers, and community organization staff and volunteers from 3 cities in Metropolitan Detroit, the process of community resource referral will be described. Findings reveal a deeply "sociotechnical" process (involving interwoven social and technology-based elements). The detailed sociotechnical process revealed will be discussed, along with the implications for those currently implementing community resource referrals. The importance of knowledge and skills, personal relationships, interorganizational networks, and data sources such as service directories in the referral process will be discussed.

HITEQ Learning Collaborative Series

Jodie Albert 0 1982

Health centers are interested in implementing remote patient monitoring (RPM), but are struggling to do so efficiently and completely because of policy, social, and technology barriers combined with staffing and time pressure. To support health centers in the strategic implementation of RPM, the HITEQ Center is launching a free learning collaborative -- Health Center Remote Patient Monitoring and Digital Health.  This learning collaborative will provide participating health centers a series of four structured virtual learning sessions. 

During the series participants will engage with subject matter experts and their colleagues in peer-to-peer learning and discussion. Topics will include: defining the problem that RPM could address; determining the appropriate RPM technology solution; set-up and implementation of RPM technology and processes within an organization; and evaluation, sustainability and scaling RPM to ensure efficiency and value. Participants will gain information on key considerations for each of these components of implementation of RPM.
