Computer Administered Safety Planning For Individuals At Risk For Suicide: Development And Usability Testing, Edwin D. Boudreaux, Gregory K. Brown, Barbara Stanley, Rajani S. Sadasivam, Carlos A. Camargo Jr, Ivan W. Miller

Rajani S. Sadasivam

BACKGROUND: Safety planning is a brief intervention that has become an accepted practice in many clinical settings to help prevent suicide. Even though it is quick compared to other approaches, it frequently requires 20 min or more to complete, which can impede adoption. A self-administered, Web-based safety planning application could potentially reduce clinician time, help promote standardization and quality, and provide enhanced ability to share the created plan.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to design, build, and test the usability of a Web-based, self-administered safety planning application.

METHODS: We employed a user-centered software design strategy led by a ...

eGEMs (Generating Evidence & Methods to improve patient outcomes)

Introduction: Variations in processes for different clinics and health systems can dramatically change the way preventive interventions are implemented. We present a method for documenting these variations using workflow diagrams and demonstrate how understanding workflow aided an electronic health record (EHR) embedded colorectal cancer screening intervention.

Materials and Methods: We mapped variation in processes for ordering and documenting fecal testing, current colonoscopy, prior colonoscopies, and pathology results. This work was part of a multi-site cluster-randomized pragmatic trial to test a mailed approach to offering fecal testing at 26 safety net clinics (in eight organizations) in Oregon and Northern California. We ...

A Framework For Classification Of Electronic Health Data Extraction-Transformation-Loading Challenges In Data Network Participation, Toan C. Ong, Rosina Pradhananga, Erin Holve, Michael G. Kahn

eGEMs (Generating Evidence & Methods to improve patient outcomes)

Background: Contributing health data to national, regional, and local networks or registries requires data stored in local systems with local structures and codes to be extracted, transformed, and loaded into a standard format called a common data model (CDM). These processes called Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) require data partners or contributors to invest in costly technical resources with specialized skills in data models, terminologies, and programming. Given the wide range of tasks, skills, and technologies required to transform data into a CDM, a classification of ETL challenges can help identify needed resources, which in turn, may encourage data partners with ...

Problem Definition and Data: The rapid growth and adoption of electronic health records (EHR) technology has created a unique opportunity to leverage the abundant clinical data, available as EHRs, to find meaningful phenotypic subtypes for CKD. In this study, we focus on extracting disease severity profiles for CKD while accounting ...


Affordable And Accessible Hearing Healthcare Interventions In The United States: A Literature Review And Prospective Analysis, Garrett Thompson 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Affordable And Accessible Hearing Healthcare Interventions In The United States: A Literature Review And Prospective Analysis, Garrett Thompson

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Age-related hearing loss is a significant public health concern with serious and far-reaching consequences including: social isolation, depression, faster cognitive decline, and increased risk of falls. Hearing loss is a widespread condition, it is in fact a leading cause of disability among older people. Hearing aids, the primary intervention for adults with hearing loss, are costly and inaccessible to many patients who need them. Among other reasons, these factors have led to a low uptake rate among the adult population; only one in seven adults who could benefit from wearing hearing aids utilizes them. Given the status quo of high ...

Putting Care Back Into "Health Care:" An Analysis Of The Place Of Community Health Workers Within The U.S. Health Care System, Megan Schowalter

Honors Program Theses

This paper explores who a Community Health Worker (CHW) is and contextualizes the social, political, and historical factors that allowed for the growth of CHWs within the primary health care sector in the U.S. It analyzes how CHWs perceive their own roles and responsibilities within the U.S. health system as a means of highlighting the gap within health care services and the influence of Social Determinants of Health (SDH) on well-being. The second part of this paper relates CHWs to scholarship by medical anthropologist Paul Farmer and public health scholar Alicia Yamin concerning pathologies of power and the ...
