Impact of a health information technology intervention on the follow-up management of pulmonary nodules.
Recommendations to improve care for patients with pulmonary nodules require follow-up management. However, transitions in care can exacerbate failures in follow-up testing and compromise patient safety. The study authors evaluated the impact of a discharge module that included follow-up recommendations for further management of pulmonary nodules on the study outcome and follow-up management of patients with pulmonary nodules within 1 year after discharge.
