|Brief Title ICMJE||Shared Online Health Records for Patient Safety and Care|
|Official Title ICMJE||Shared Online Health Records for Patient Safety and Care|
The study uses a randomized, prospective cohort design to assess the impact of shared online health records on 1) patient safety, 2) health goal adherence and outcomes, 3) documentation of family history, and 4) barriers to the adoption of patient-physician communication technology.
Hypothesis: the respective interventions will result in 1) improved patient safety 2) greater adherence to health care maintenance and chronic disease guidelines 3) more accurate documentation of family history 4) the identification of technology adoption enablers and barriers.
During the first phase of the study, primary care practice patients continue to receive “usual care” while their physician’s offices are using Patient Gateway, an Internet portal offering secure messaging, common requests, chart information, and health information that has already been developed. Also in this first phase, all patients using Patient Gateway will receive an electronic letter explaining the research study and a link to an electronic consent form. In addition to recruitment of subjects, phase 1 allows for baseline data to be collected.
In the second phase, study clinics will be randomized into one of two intervention “arms”. Study subjects whose clinics are randomized into Arm 1 will be invited to review and comment on their medication, allergy, and diabetes information through Patient Gateway; they can then submit this information to their primary care physician for review. Those randomized into Arm 2 will report on their health maintenance status and family history and submit this information to their primary care physician through Patient Gateway prior to a scheduled visit. Chart reviews performed at the end of Phase 1 and Phase 2 will be conducted to identify differences in process measures and outcome measures between intervention and control groups.
In addition, a medication phone survey sub-study will be conducted to evaluate the effect of the new Patient Gateway features on medication management.
