This study will develop a new electronic health record module to improve guideline-compliant care of older adults with diabetes. The module will incorporate effective behavioral economics (BE) principles to improve the degree to which care of older adults is compliant with Choosing Wisely guidelines; this generally involves less aggressive targets for HbA1c, and reductions of medications other than metformin.
The implementation of the module will ultimately be triggered by medication prescribing in EPIC. The BE principles include suggesting alternatives to medications, requiring justification, setting of appropriate default order sets, and incorporation of anchoring and checklists to guide behavior. The study will involve provider workflow analysis based on observation, module user testing, and live usability testing with direct observation and semi-structure interviews.
