ABOUT THE MEETING:   (updated 12/31/2011)

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) has a long history of using quality improvement methods to improve patient outcomes.  The arrival of electronic health records (EHRs) has allowed these quality improvement methods to become more widespread in scale and more real-time in nature.  Over the past several years, CCHMC has implemented an enterprise-wide EHR, and as part of this implementation, has worked to develop screens that allow for the capture and eventual calculation of condition-specific outcome measures.  In parallel to the rollout of the EHR, CCHMC has also deployed a research patient data warehouse built upon an open-source informatics framework called i2b2.  Developers at CCHMC have extended this framework to make it suitable for storing outcomes data and also as a platform for research patient registries.  This talk will focus on the rationale and technical solutions that have made these efforts possible.
