Description

Abstract: To support integrating comparative effectiveness research (CER) into patient-care, we extended the application of medical informatics to streamline all CER procedures. With an informatics-enabled workflow, operated with synchronizations to multiple VA healthcare information systems, this design also seamlessly expands CER to patients nationally. We plan to enroll 13,500 veterans remotely across 50 VA medical centers. Thus far, this centralized workflow design has successfully identified 2,712 and randomized 330 eligible patients from 3 centers in 9-months.

Learning Objective 1: Attendees will recognize the unprecedented opportunities with EMR-based research and identify how medical informatics can be applied to streamline research procedures that are usually managed at in-person visits.

Learning Objective 2 (Optional): Attendees will evaluate the use of an informatics-enabled workflow in comparative effectiveness research and understand its applications in delivering state-of-the-art research to patients across the nation.

Learning Objective 3 (Optional): Attendees will practice the concept of applying medical informatics to streamline standard research procedures and facilitate integration of comparative effectiveness research into patient-care.
