Abstract:
Purpose: A specially designed software program was developed for this project to facilitate the work of the Cardiovascular and Medical multidisciplinary teams in achieving improved clinical outcomes for patients in each of the respective cohorts. Theoretical Framework: A Clinical Informatics Specialist collaborated with the members of each multidisciplinary team to develop patient profiles for each diagnostic group that listed the quality indicators that would be the basis for clinical decision making and benchmarking against established standards. Once a patient was selected and cohorted into a diagnostic group, multidisciplinary team members had "real time" access to the patient profiles and appropriate clinical screens for managing and monitoring patients. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): A Data Analyst and Coding Specialist created the interactive databases that allowed team members to record and monitor their interventions (in "real time") on wireless laptop computers. These information specialists became vital members of the multidisciplinary patient care teams. Results: One of the Nurse Hospitalists from each team (CV and Medical) became the Clinical Informatics Liaison. All members of the multidisciplinary teams directed suggestions for enhancements to the patient database to their Nurse Hospitalists-Clinical Informatics Liaison. The Informatics Liaison and Data Analyst held weekly meetings to work on modifications to the database. Conclusions and Implications: This presentation will provide an overview of the inside dynamics of the group and decisional processes that ultimately resulted in a state of the art database for clinical decision making. Recommendations will be made for adapting this application to other outcomes research projects and participants will be provided with samples of the database screens for this project.
