Developing and Assessing the Validity of Claims-based Indicators of Frailty & Functional Disabilities in Electronic Health Records

This is the final report of an AHRQ study to address the operational gap between CFIs and EFIs. This project focused on validating an established CFI using linked claims-EHR databases of multiple large health systems. The project provides a systematic approach that health systems can use to examine the quality of the EHR data and prepare it for the application of EFI measures.

Developing and Assessing the Validity of Claims-based Indicators of Frailty and Functional Disabilities in Electronic Health Records

This project focused on validating an established claims-based frailty indexes (CFI) using linked claims-EHR databases of multiple large health systems. Additionally, the project assessed and compared the EHR and claims data of these data sources to ensure sufficient data quality for frailty analysis.

Using Audit Log Data to Assess EHR Burden

Incorporating Social Determinants of Health in Electronic Health Records: A Qualitative Study of Perspectives on Current Practices among Top Vendors

Background: Social determinants of health (SDH) are increasingly seen as important to understanding patient health and identifying appropriate interventions to improve health outcomes, in what is a complex interplay between health system, community, and individual level factors.

Measurement of Interoperable Electronic Health Care Records Utilization

The objective of this project was to develop methods to measure the degree of interoperability as a result of data sharing and use between users of certified technologies who are eligible for Meaningful Use (MU) incentives and non-incentivized Trading Partners (TPs) using non-certified technologies.

Health Information Exchange in Long-Term and Post-Acute Care Settings: Final Report

This report provides an overview of current efforts for implementing electronic health information exchange (eHIE) by long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) providers. The report describes the extent to which LTPAC providers are preparing for and implementing eHIE with their partners and assessing its impact.
