PHAROS2—Post-Handoff Reports of Outcomes 2
Project leader: Robert El-Kareh, MD, MS, MPH (email@example.com)
Brief description: Accurate and timely medical diagnosis is key to avoiding patient harms from delays in appropriate therapy, exposure to ineffective treatments and unnecessary tests. Improving feedback to front-line providers of the outcomes of diagnostic decisions is crucial to on-going learning and calibration. This project involves the refinement and evaluation of an operational system to provide this feedback within UCSD's electronic health record.
Timeframe of opportunity: Any quarter through calendar year 2019
Time commitment: One rotation
Prerequisites: Experience in human-computer interaction and user-centered design.
Aspect(s) of project trainee would work on (depending on time of rotation):
- Obtain input from front-line clinicians about current design of system
- Create mock-ups of new designs based on user feedback
- Evaluation of impact of design changes on follow-up of patient outcomes
What trainee would gain:
- Experience with applied user-centered design and human-computer interaction in a real clinical setting
- Exposure to sociotechnical barriers related to diagnosis facing practicing clinicians in an academic medical center
