This Early Careers Development grant provided support for Assistant Professor Tiffany Veinot to study the information activities and networks of chronically ill people and their family members and the roles they play in chronic illness-related coping, care, and support within families.
Health information is a critical resource for individuals and communities, but not all groups have equal access to this information. This research and the results derived from this collaborative planning project will help to shape an anticipated future large-scale research project focusing on enhancement of health information infrastructures for marginalized urban communities.
This project has explored how different information worlds in Flint, Michigan were tied to health information work, including varying translations that people make to manage their health in light of everyday concerns.
UMSI Assistant Professor Julia Adler-Milstein is conducting a study to better understand the national health information exchange (HIE) landscape and identify specific gaps in current knowledge.
The aim of this community-based participatory research project is to test a technology enhanced evidence-based prevention program for sexually transmitted infections including HIV among 18-24 year olds.
UMSI Assistant Professor of Information Julia Adler-Milstein collaborated with Mathematica Policy Research and the Harvard School of Public Health to develop a report on the adoption of health information technology (HIT) among United States healthcare providers.
Professor Charles P. Friedman, director of the University of Michigan Health Informatics program, received a National Science Foundation grant to hold a workshop on “Identifying the Research Challenges Underlying a National-scale Learning Health System.”
With this project, funded by a U-M Global Challenges for a Third Century grant, Charles Friedman will lead a team of 43 faculty members and senior staff from 10 academic units in developing key elements that make possible a complete Learning Health System (LHS) at a national and ultimately a global scale.
This project will help to establish objectives and define criteria to implement technology in healthcare as part of Stage 3 of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The HITECH Act was enacted in 2009 to create a nationwide network of electronic health records (EHRs) to improve the quality and efficiency of care given to all Americans.
Proposed by UMSI Assistant Professor Julia Adler-Milstein, this project will examine data accumulated over time on hospital IT adoption in order to characterize and better understand approaches to electronic health record adoption. Christy Harris Lemak and Shoou-Yih Daniel Lee from the U-M School of Public Health are collaborating with Adler-Milstein on this project.
