eGEMs (Generating Evidence & Methods to improve patient outcomes)

Purpose: Multi-institutional collaborations are necessary in order to create large and robust data sets that are needed to answer important comparative effectiveness research (CER) questions. Before scientific work can begin, a complex maze of administrative and regulatory requirements must be efficiently navigated to avoid project delays.

Innovation: Staff from research, regulatory, and administrative teams involved in three HMO Research Network (HMORN) multi-institutional collaborations developed and employed novel approaches: to secure and maintain Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals; to enable data sharing, and to expedite subawards for two data-only minimal risk studies. These novel approaches accelerated required processes and approvals while ...


How Will Public Health And Primary Care Come Together In Massachusetts?, Javier Crespo 2014 University of Massachusetts Boston

How Will Public Health And Primary Care Come Together In Massachusetts?, Javier Crespo

Javier Crespo

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aims to place public health and prevention practice closer to the clinical care delivery system by mandating basic preventive services and creating a national prevention plan. The Massachusetts health care system has a number of elements that can help foster closer linking of public health practices in the primary care setting. This research set out to examine whether the current healthcare system in Massachusetts will enable public health and primary care integration as intimated upon by the Affordable Care Act. This study will assess the current connection between public health and primary care ...


Implementing E-Health Through Chi: A Very Canadian Solution To A Very Canadian Problem, Tom Daniels 2014 McMaster University

Implementing E-Health Through Chi: A Very Canadian Solution To A Very Canadian Problem, Tom Daniels

Health Reform Observer - Observatoire des Réformes de Santé

Canada Health Infoway (CHI) was established as an arms-length body by the federal government in 2001 to provide funding to provinces for the development of interoperable e-health systems. CHI was established in response to a number of reports calling on the government to act to make use of technological advances to improve health care quality and provide more rigorous data. In addition to these explicit goals, through establishing CHI the federal government also sought to avoid potential criticism if the implementation of e-health failed, increase its own popularity ahead of the 2000 election and subtly redistribute wealth between the provinces ...

Robust System For Infection Control - An Industrial Systems Engineering Approach, Sundaravel Vinay Swarup Achudhan

Mechanical (and Materials) Engineering -- Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research

Health care delivery in the United States needs improvement. Each year about 98,000 people die as a result of medical errors and the United States is outranked by a number of developed countries in life expectancy, mortality and comorbidity. Healthcare quality is determined based on the quality of the service provided to the patient during their visit. Apart from the traditional problem solving design and development tools used to improve healthcare quality, The National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine recommend systems engineering principle and systems engineering tools to be used in health care to improve the ...

More Than A Diagnosis: Enabling Medical Students To Understand And Address The Patient’S Psychological Needs, Paige Jarmuz 2014 Syracuse University

More Than A Diagnosis: Enabling Medical Students To Understand And Address The Patient’S Psychological Needs, Paige Jarmuz

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Patient-centered care is a framework for providing medical services in a humanistic, patient-focused manner. Although there are many proposed dimensions, it is simply the perspective of caring for the patient as a person with psychosocial needs, not just a diagnosis. Extensive literature review was completed to gain understanding of the application of patient-centered care in undergraduate medical education, as well as the evidence behind implementing patient-centered methods. Aspects of patient-centered care may be taught in many medical schools but their importance warrants a stronger focus. Incorporating aspects of patient- centered care is not only most ethical, but also is also ...


Caregiving And The Experience Of Health And Illness In Children Living With Hiv/Aids In Gulu District Northern Uganda: An Ethnographic Research Narrative, Constantine S.L. Loum PhD 2014 The Beryl Institute

Caregiving And The Experience Of Health And Illness In Children Living With Hiv/Aids In Gulu District Northern Uganda: An Ethnographic Research Narrative, Constantine S.L. Loum Phd

Patient Experience Journal

In this paper we discuss the experience of caregiving for children living with HIV in a resource poor environment in Gulu municipality in northern Uganda; the main research questions of the study were: what are the perceptions of caregivers on the care of children with HIV, and what barriers and enablers exist that undermine or promote better care for children respectively? The experience of caregivers and their perceptions on managing HIV in children is believed to shape the health seeking behaviour towards treatment and efforts to cope with its negative impact on the body. Women and children are the greatest ...

The Role Of Governing Boards In Improving Patient Experience: Attitudes And Activities Of Health Service Boards In Victoria, Australia, Marie Bismark, Susan Biggar, Catherine Crock, Jennifer M. Morris, David M. Studdert

Patient Experience Journal

The authors sought to determine the attitudes of public health service board members and senior executives toward patient experience and to describe the governance activities of the boards in this area. The study was based on an online survey of 322 board members from 85 public health services and semi-structured interviews with 35 board members and senior executives from 13 public health services in Victoria, Australia. The results showed that while some health service boards had high aspirations and clear plans for improving patient experience, others remained sluggish or even cynically resistant to changing their existing models of care. Interviewees ...

Patients’ Experiences In The Uk: Future Strategic Directions, Sophie Staniszewska, Neil Churchill

Patient Experience Journal

Over the last decade policy has emphasised the importance of a good patient experience as a cornerstone of high quality health and social care in the UK, with many initiatives attempting to develop patient-centred practice. More recently, the Francis Inquiry has addressed the significant failings in care identified at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust in England and has been pivotal in raising the importance of patient experience.1 The Francis report made 290 recommendations, with many emphasizing the importance of patient experience through their focus on specific ways in which the quality of experiences can be enhanced, for example, by ...


What Matters Most To Patients? Participative Provider Care And Staff Courtesy, Andrew H. Van de Ven 2014 The Beryl Institute

What Matters Most To Patients? Participative Provider Care And Staff Courtesy, Andrew H. Van De Ven

Patient Experience Journal

Although there is growing recognition of the importance of having satisfied patients, we know little about what aspects of care matter most to patients. The sources of patient satisfaction and how care delivery can influence them need more empirical study. The objective of this study was to identify which aspects of a patient’s experience of care are most important to patient satisfaction, and how dimensions of care relate to clinic size, economic performance, and employee job satisfaction. To explore our question, longitudinal survey data were obtained on patients and employees over two years (1996 and 1997). Relationships between patient ...


Psychometric Properties Of The New Patients’ Expectations Questionnaire, Ann Bowling BSc, MSc, PhD, Gene Rowe PhD 2014 The Beryl Institute

Psychometric Properties Of The New Patients’ Expectations Questionnaire, Ann Bowling Bsc, Msc, Phd, Gene Rowe Phd

Patient Experience Journal

The authors explore the development of the Patients’ Expectations Questionnaire (PEQ) and examination of psychometric characteristics it encompasses by reviewing surveys of primary care and hospital outpatients before and after their clinic visit. Three scales were developed for Pre-visit Ideal and Realistic expectations, and Post-visit Experiences (met expectations), based on literature review, semi-structured interviews, and subsequently piloted and refined. Patients completed the questionnaire about their ideal and realistic expectations before they saw the doctor, and were asked if their expectations had been met afterwards. The results show the scales met acceptability criteria for reliability (Cronbach’s alphas exceeded α 0 ...

Patient Experience Journal

The use of measures of patient-centered care to evaluate hospital care is mandated by The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Using three years of data from 315 California acute-care hospitals and data collected from patients via the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey, we seek to evaluate patients’ hospital-care experience by (1) analyzing patients’ experience-of-care scores in light of these hospitals’ patient profiles, structural characteristics, and outcomes in 2011, and (2) determining and analyzing the extent of changes in patients’ experience of care over the three-year period 2009–2011. For 2011, we find ...

Veterans’ Experiences Of Patient-Centered Care: Learning From Guided Tours, Sara M. Locatelli Phd, Stephanie Turcios Bs, Cepep, Sherri L. Lavela Phd, Mph, Mba

Patient Experience Journal

In this paper the authors seek to examine Veterans’ experiences with patient-centered care (PCC) at 2 United States Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities. The authors conduct their research through a process of guided tours, in which the participant leads the evaluator through an environment and shares thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Tours were conducted in April 2013 with 30 Veterans receiving care at these VA facilities. Via the tours participants discussed aspects of the environment of care, and described some as ‘welcoming,’ while describing others as ‘chaotic.’ Participants provided multiple examples of PCC, frequently defining PCC in terms of accessibility of appointments ...
