A multidisciplinary approach to designing and evaluating electronic medical record portal messages that support patient self-care.
The authors describe a project intended to improve the use of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) patient portal information by older adults with diverse numeracy and literacy abilities, so that portals can better support patient-centered care. Their approach combines quantitative measures, as well as experimental and individual difference methods in order to investigate which formats are more effective, and whether some formats benefit some types of patients more than others.
