Abstract

The overall purpose of this research study is to discover and apply new knowledge regarding methods to predict the impact of an electronic health record (EHR) on clinical practice guidelines in complex systems such as hospitals. Specifically, the aims of this study are: 1) to build, simulate and validate the accuracy of a computational model representing the current practice patterns in a sample of patients diagnosed with heart failure (HF) and treated in a community hospital; and 2) using computational modeling and simulation, develop a method to predict the effects of best practice guidelines on practice patterns after implementation of an EHR.
