BACKGROUND: The process of transitioning Veterans to primary care following a non-Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitalization can be challenging. Poor transitions result in medical complications and increased hospital readmissions. The goal of this transition of care quality improvement (QI) project is to identify gaps in the current transition process and implement an intervention that bridges the gap and improves the current transition of care process within the Eastern Colorado Health Care System (ECHCS)...

BACKGROUND: Effective clinical supervision is necessary for high-quality care in community-based substance use disorder treatment settings, yet little is known about current supervision practices. Some evidence suggests that supervisors and counselors differ in their experiences of clinical supervision; however, the impact of this misalignment on supervision quality is unclear. Clinical information monitoring systems may support supervision in substance use disorder treatment, but the potential use of these tools must first be explored...

CONTEXT: Foodborne illness affects 1 in 4 US residents each year. Few of those sickened seek medical care or report the illness to public health authorities, complicating prevention efforts. Citizens who report illness identify food establishments with more serious and critical violations than found by regular inspections. New media sources, including online restaurant reviews and social media postings, have the potential to improve reporting. OBJECTIVE: We implemented a Web-based Dashboard (HealthMap Foodborne Dashboard) to identify and respond to tweets about food poisoning from St Louis City residents...

Portable electronic medical records used by home care nurses do not provide well-organized displays of previous documentation regarding patient care. The retrieved information is in a disorderly format; therefore, clinicians have to manually organize necessary information from multiple screens. This article describes the development of clinical dashboards to present key information necessary for individual patient care; a scenario using the clinical dashboards; and home care nurses' perceptions of the clinical dashboards...

: 11 Background: Value, defined as outcomes relative to costs, cannot be improved without rigorous long-term measurement. To assess value within a bundled payment pilot for head and neck cancer, we aim to generate timely, patient-centered outcomes and robust, near-real time financial tracking (Porter and Teisberg, Redefining health care. Creating value-based competition on results; Harvard Business School Press, 2006). METHODS: Clinical and quality experts created an outcome measure set for head and neck cancer, using a three-tiered outcomes hierarchy from Michael Porter of Harvard Business School as a framework...

: 260 Background: For reporting purposes and to enable ongoing quality improvement, it is essential that metrics reflective of quality oncology care delivery are tracked and reviewed on an ongoing basis. Collection of performance data and incorporation into a usable dashboard can require significant IT resources, both in personnel time and direct costs. The Tisch Cancer Institute (TCI) identified a myriad of cancer quality metrics that required prioritization in order to best allocate limited IT resources and a standardized process to facilitate comparison across different disease groups...

: 168 Background: Radiation oncology specific oncology information systems (OIS) are highly specialized and capture large amounts of rich data related to patient care. There is great potential to expand the utility of these systems from data collection and point-of-care documentation to platforms for radiation oncology informatics. To this end, we have begun an effort to consolidate and standardize the OIS within a large network of radiation oncology clinics. We report initial findings from a multi-center OIS standardization pilot involving five clinics...

: 25 Background: Poor costing systems and measurement have led to cross-subsidies and cost-shifting in health care. A large academic cancer center has adopted Robert Kaplan's bottom-up cost accounting methodology called time-driven, activity-based costing (TDABC). TDABC in health care has been proven to be an effective cost accounting tool to measure and improve care delivery by standardizing and creating transparency around patient care processes. The project aims to process map and identify event triggers associated with each process map, use a software applications to compute the costs and resource capacities...

Glenn P Carroll, Sanjay Srivastava, Adam S Volini, Marta M Piñeiro-Núñez, Tatiana Vetman
Today, most pharmaceutical companies complement their traditional R&D models with some variation on the Open Innovation (OI) approach in an effort to better access global scientific talent, ideas and hypotheses. Traditional performance indicators that measure economic returns from R&D through commercialization are often not applicable to the practical assessment of these OI approaches, particularly within the context of early drug discovery. This leaves OI programs focused on early R&D without a standard assessment framework from which to evaluate overall performance...

Modern cars are equipped with both active and passive sensor systems that can detect potential collisions. In contrast, locusts avoid collisions solely by responding to certain visual cues that are associated with object looming. In neurophysiological experiments, I investigated the possibility that the 'collision-detector neurons' of locusts respond to impending collisions in films recorded with dashboard cameras of fast driving cars. In a complementary modelling approach, I developed a simple algorithm to reproduce the neuronal response that was recorded during object approach...

The promise of drug repurposing is that existing drugs may be used for new disease indications in order to curb the high costs and time for approval. The goal of computational methods for drug repurposing is to enable solutions for safer, cheaper and faster drug discovery. Towards this end, we developed a novel method that integrates genetic and clinical phenotype data from large-scale GWAS and PheWAS studies with detailed drug information on the concept of transitive Drug-Gene-Disease triads. We created "RE:fine Drugs," a freely available, interactive dashboard that automates gene, disease and drug-based searches to identify drug repurposing candidates...
