Integration of Standard Dermatology Outcome Measures in Electronic Medical Records to treat Atopic Dermatitis

Organization:
EMORY UNIVERSITY

The overall goal is to test the integration of simple and practical measurement tools designed for robust outcomes assessments of patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) in routine clinical practice. This project seeks to address the “lack of integration of severity assessment into electronic medical records (EMR)” as a barrier to achieving appropriate assessment of AD severity.  With an iterative approach hinged on the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle of the Model for Improvement, we propose three phases to implement a set of simple standardized dermatology outcome measures into the EMR without interrupting clinical workflow and providing useful information to providers (target population) treating AD patients at the time of service.
