I’m so excited to announce a special session at Stanford Medicine X in September that was developed in collaboration with Dr. Teresa Zayas-Caban, a senior manager, Health IT, for the Agency for Health Research Quality (AHRQ). In this exciting session, you’ll learn about AHRQ, funding opportunities, and how to get involved in the field of health IT research from top researchers in the field.
Delivering Patient-Centered Care Using Health IT: Experiences from AHRQ-Funded Projects
There has been increased development of health information technology (IT) interventions to support the consumers in their health and health care. Effective interventions must account for diverse user needs, and are most successful when delivered as part of a broader care management program. This panel will feature presentations from three successful projects funded under the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Enabling Patient-Centered Care through Health IT grant initiative. Presenters will discuss each of their projects, which feature disease management and preventive interventions that use different platforms and approaches, and lessons learned from each project. Presenters will also discuss how they became established researchers in the field of health IT and health services research, and how others can get involved in the field.
