Dixon BE, Boockvar KS. Event Notification in Support of Population Health: The Promise and Challenges from a Randomized Controlled Trial. Studies in health technology and informatics. 2017 Jan 1; 245:1357.
Event notifications are real-time, electronic alerts that have the promise of improving population health by exchanging critical information to a patient's extended care team. In a trial of event noficiations in U.S. Veterans Affairs facilities, we seek to understand the impact of notifications on health care utilization within 30 and 90-days. Lessons from the trial have implications beyond the evidence by informing strategies to develop and implement event notifications in other health systems.
