Evaluation of digital health tool implementations

California Health IT (HIT) Landscape
Sponsor: Department of Health Care Services

Over the past decade, the state of California has invested in HIT infrastructure for many different types of providers. This project will examine HIT adoption, HIE engagement, and the interoperability status of California health data to develop a thorough understanding of the current state of HIT infrastructure. We will then solicit and synthesize feedback on California HIT priorities to inform policy efforts for HIT in the next five years in the State of California.

Patient generated health data are central to our national health information technology roadmap and can be very useful for clinical decision making. Funded by a UCSF grant, we will engage patients as self-reporters of readmissions, leveraging 2 types of digital health tools, surveys and geofencing. This will help UCSF Health improve its timely understanding of readmissions wherever they occur (at UCSF or elsewhere) and gain insights into the populations for which previously unrecognized readmissions are a disproportionate problem.
