EVAL-WG: STARE-HI: A Guideline for Writing Health IT Evaluation Papers

STARE-HI is a guideline for the publication of health IT (HIT) evaluation studies. STARE-HI was developed to respond to the urgent need for high-quality health IT evaluation publications. STARE-HI has been adopted by scientific journals such as Applied Clinical Informatics (ACI) and Methods of Information in Medicine, to support authors in writing comprehensive health IT evaluation papers.

STARE-HI: A Guideline for Writing Health IT Evaluation Papers - **Webinar rescheduled for January/February of 2014**

This Webinar has been rescheduled for a date TBD in January/February of 2014.

The AMIA Evaluation Working Group, with participation from the IMIA Technology Assessment & Quality Development in Health Informatics WG and the EFMI Assessment of Health Information Systems WG, present the STARE-HI webinar.

EVAL-WG: Nordic Indicators/Meaningful Use: A Comparative Look at What We Are Collecting and Measuring in EHRs and Why

The AMIA Evalution working group, along with participation from the IMIA Technology Assessmen & Quality Development in Health Informatics working group, present a webinar that will allow registrants to gain an understanding of the state of use measures and indicators within EHR systems, and where the current line is regarding their ties to health outcomes.

Learning Objectives

During this webinar you will learn:

NI-WG: High-quality, Standard, Controlled Healthcare Terminologies Come of Age

Today, everything from automated health surveys to electronic health records makes use of some kind of controlled terminology to condense users' input into a set of symbols that can be recognized and manipulated.  However, any controlled terminology will necessarily lack the richness of detail available from the vocabulary of a natural language; the loss of this detail is one of the trade-offs for having data in a computable form.

NI-WG: Infographics for Cognitive Support in Latinos of Varying Levels of Health Literacy

Individuals with varying degrees of health literacy have different capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information needed to make appropriate health decisions. Information graphics (infographics) can support human cognitive processing. The objective of this webinar is to provide an overview on the topic of infographics as a method for cognitive support for Latinos with varying levels of health literacy and describe our approach using examples from the Washington Heights/Inwood Informatics Infrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research project (R01HS019853) .

EVAL-WG: A Methodology for Clinical Team-led Design (CTLD) and an Evaluation by Comparing two ED Clinical Information Systems

One of the challenges of creating an efficient clinical information system is to ensure that it supports current workflow within the clinical specialty.  Large ERP solutions are suitable for standardizing work processes across a variety of clinical specialties or to deliver a single service across a whole hospital or hospital system.  Best-of-Breed systems while in principle should support local workflows don't always do so as they have their own in-built vendor preferences.  A new type of technology which enables the clinical team to design all aspects of their CIS solutions has been teste
