Evidence into Action: Improving User Interface to Improve Patient Outcomes

Guest Editor: Thomas McGinn, MD, MPH

Despite rapid uptake of electronic health records (EHRs) and clinical decision support tools (CDS), implementing EHR and CDS tools into complex health care systems and clinical workflow continues to be challenging due to poor integration of these systems. Dr. Thomas McGinn (Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine) serves as guest editor of the newest eGEMs special issue, Evidence into Action: Improving User Interface to Improve Patient Outcomes, which shares lessons learned based on the experiences and perspectives of leaders and innovators developing and deploying user-friendly health IT interfaces and CDS tools.


AcademyHealth’s EDM Forum was created through a cooperative agreement from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Grant #U13 HS19564. Ongoing support for the EDM Forum comes from AHRQ Grant #U18 HS022789.
