Description

Consumer Informatics Research Program: Impacts and health outcomes of patient portal utilization Consumer Informatics Research Program: Impacts and health outcomes of patient portal utilization Objectives Develop and implement scientific approaches to assessing the impacts and health outcomes of integrating consumer informatics technologies into outpatient services. Four projects are proposed for 2013-2014. The objectives of each project are listed below: Project (1) Assess the overall impacts on costs and health outcomes of portal secure messages enterprise-wide. The definition of secure messages includes provider-patient messaging, internal and external eConsults. Project (2) Assess and identify different patient segments based on technology readiness and channel preferences for interactions with Mayo Clinic. Project (3) Explore the benefits and impacts of utilizing patient portal communications to improve preventative care compliance. Project (4) Design focused experiments to assess health outcomes and patient satisfaction with remote care devices in chronic disease contexts. The objectives for the year 2013-2014 are part of a longer term strategy for implementing a comprehensive consumer informatics research program at Mayo Clinic. The Consumer Informatics research program will apply scientific methodologies to conduct research on consumer-oriented technologies and their impact on the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare delivery processes. The program will focus on four core consumer informatics areas to help advance patient-centric clinical practice and processes: (a) Technology/platform services assessment, (b) Experimentation& adoption facilitation, (c) Impacts assessment, and (d) Knowledge dissemination.
