Featured Toolkit: Partnering with Parents of Hospitalized Children Using an Inpatient Portal

Doctor Parent and Tablet

An inpatient portal is a patient-facing web-based application intended to engage hospitalized patients and their caregivers by providing secure access to their personal health information.

The Partnering with Parents of Hospitalized Children Using an Inpatient Portal toolkit was developed to help guide the introduction, implementation, and/or evaluation of an inpatient portal in healthcare organizations.

The toolkit contains materials to engage institutional stakeholders, implementation timeline and planning information, key decisions and considerations, data collection tools to monitor the impact of the portal, and more. You can learn more about the implementation of the inpatient portal at American Family Children's Hospital here.

MyHEART website launched to help young adults with high blood pressure

Heather JohnsonApproximately 1 in 15 young adults have high blood pressure, and they have lowest rates of blood pressure control compared to other adult age groups, putting them at risk for a future heart attack, stroke, congestive heart failure, and/or kidney disease. To help address this issue, Dr. Heather Johnson and her team recently launched a new website, MyHEART, that aims to help young adults with high blood pressure live a healthier life, lower their blood pressure, and prevent heart disease. A toolkit with information for providers and administrators about how they can use and promote the website with patients is also available. Learn more about the MyHEART program here.

A family-centered rounds checklist, family engagement, and patient safety

Family-Centered RoundsIn a recent randomized clinical trial led by Dr. Elizabeth Cox, implementing a checklist during family-centered rounds increased family engagement and the safety of hospitalized children from the perspective of the families. The checklist was developed with input from the hospital staff and families of hospitalized children, and two items were found to significantly increase family engagement: when hospital staff read back orders, families engaged in more decision-making and provided more information, and families were also more engaged when the team talked about goals for discharge. A press release about the study is available here, and the materials needed to implement the family-centered rounds checklist in are available here.

Predictors of primary care provider adoption of CT colonography for colorectal cancer screening

CT ScanIn a recent study by Dr. Jennifer Weiss et al. to examine factors influencing primary care provider adoption of CT colonography (CTC) for colorectal cancer screening, the authors linked survey responses with electronic health record data and found that substantial variation in the use of CTC for screening existed among primary care providers and clinics. Primary care providers were more likely to recommend CTC for screening if they specialized in Internal Medicine, perceived that it was effective in reducing mortality from colorectal cancer, or thought that CTC had a higher number of perceived advantages.
