Improving Quality by Maintaining Accurate Problem Lists in the EHR (IQ-MAPLE)

R01HL122225 (PI – Adam Wright, PhD  2014-2018) An accurate, complete clinical problem list the cornerstone of a problem-oriented medical record, and research shows that accurate problem lists improve healthcare quality; however, problem lists are often incomplete. In this study, we will develop and evaluate an intervention to identify gaps in problem lists for patients with heart, lung, and blood conditions. If successful, this system should improve problem list completeness and, ultimately, the quality of care delivered to patients.
