Cardiovascular Disease PANO NOFO 1815
B.1: Promote the adoption and use of electronic health records (EHR) and Health Information Technology (HIT) to improve provider outcomes and patient's health outcomes related to identification of individuals with undiagnosed hypertension and management of adults with hypertension.
Promote the Use
Promote the adoption
Of Electronic Health records (EHR): I would say that 95-99% of all health systems and clinics have adopted an EHR
Of Health Information Technology (HIT): I would say as well that most Health Systems with an EHR have as part of the package, Population health tools. I'm sure you could find some useful tools, but they would be additives to an already robust system of HIT designed for generating revenue by getting clients back into the clinic, and on a more altruistic level, doing population health to increase the overall heart health of a population.
Promising health information technology, if not fully integrated into an EHR would need to be seamless, unobstructive, and not create more work for the clinic.
Fully integrated HIT
Promote the adoption of evidence based quality measurement at the provider level
For example: Use Dashboard measures to monitor healthcare disparities
Implement activities to eliminate healthcare disparities
Evidence-based quality measurement for providers: Quality is defined by the national academy of medicine as the degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge.
