Institution: University of Washington
Project Description: There are three aims in this research:
Career Goals: Dr. Devine is a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacy at the University of Washington, Seattle. She received her PharmD from the University of the Pacific, Stockton, CA and did her pharmacy residency at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Palo Alto, CA. She went on to earn her MBA at the University of San Francisco and her PhD in Health Services Research from the University of Washington. Her long-term goal is to become an independent investigator in health services focusing on the impact of ACPOE on medication safety.
Progress to Date: For Aim #1, Dr. Devine refined and finalized the protocol and data elements included in the final dataset. She reviewed the literature for estimates of the costs and benefits of implementing a CPOE system in the ambulatory setting, or as a viable alternative, the costs and benefits of implementing an HER in the ambulatory setting (Aim #3).
Future Plans: For Aim #2, the grantee will create simulation scenarios to explore the preferences of clinicians with differing screen displays where DCS alerts are presented, and will characterize these in their varying stages of development. Manuscripts will be drafted.
