  • Resources for Implementing and Tracking the Effect of Health IT Tools
    Session Number: 93
    Track ID: C
    Session Description: Health information technology (IT) systems have been praised for their potential to advance a wide spectrum of health-related outcomes, such as improving patient safety and care quality. However, as more is understood, the promises of health IT systems often fall short of reaching their full potential because of many factors, such as a lack of integration into clinical workflow process. Furthermore, examples of unintended consequences stemming from health IT have emerged. Monitoring the impact of health IT post-implementation to ensure systems are effective and unintended consequences can be identified and remedied before they reach the patient has become vital. Unfortunately little is known about workflow for processes that can be used to guide decisions about where and how to integrate health IT as well as identifying health IT-related hazards. To that end, in 2008, AHRQ awarded a contract to develop the Workflow Assessment for Health IT toolkit, which health care organizations and decision-makers can use to help them assess their workflows and determine when/how health IT may be used. Additionally, in 2010, AHRQ awarded a contract to develop the Health IT Hazard Manager, a tool for the identification of specific types of hazards, linked to compromised patient care or outright harm. AHRQ contractors will demonstrate the Workflow Assessment for Health IT toolkit and the Hazard Manager software to show attendees how to use them in their own practices and organizations.

  • Innovative Adaptation and Dissemination of AHRQ Comparative Effectiveness Research Products: Developing Strategies for Implementation and Evaluation
    Session Number: 10
    Track ID: E
    Session Description: Innovative Adaptation and Dissemination of AHRQ Comparative Effectiveness Research Products (iADAPT) grants represent a $30 million investment in translating and disseminating CER products to hard-to-reach populations. Although they comprise varied approaches and address various populations, they have common goals. Improved health outcomes are the ultimate goal; these, however, may be difficult to measure. Intermediate outcomes, including increased use of effective health care practices, reflect progress toward these goals, and proximal outcomes, including distribution of AHRQ products, are necessary first steps toward improving evidence-based health care practice. This session will present an evaluation framework for the iADAPT grants that will seek to identify goals at all three levels that are shared across iADAPT grants. Further, it will present outcome measures that grantees and others can use to measure these outcomes. Presenters will involve the audience in a working session to build consensus around useful measures that grantees will use in their iADAPT evaluations.
