Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A post analysis of a preventive and chronic healthcare tool
by Borrayo, Brooke D., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 40; 1527892
Abstract (Summary)

The focus of this study was to examine the post implementation of a preventive and chronic care tool that utilizes clinical information systems, delivery system design, and clinical decision support to maximize the office visit. It concentrates on the frequency of utilization and successful opportunities captured rates to determine if improvements were made in addressing care gaps and providing treatment during the medical encounter. This study uses secondary quantitative data focusing on one preventive measure and one chronic care measure.

The analysis suggests a significant positive relationship between frequency of utilization rates to address preventive and chronic care gaps. There is no implication of a significant positive relationship with the successfully captured rate, which satisfies closing the care gap within 45 days.
