Technologies in Preventive Medicine. I'm Dr. Angela Michelide, Vice President of Programs and Education at the American College of Preventive Medicine.
And I'm so delighted that we're joined today by Dr. Colby Uptegraff, who will be providing our presentation. And this session will be moderated by Dr. Leith States.
Just wanna share a little bit about our organization. The American College of Preventive Medicine is a professional medical society of approximately 2,000 physicians
dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of individuals, families, communities, and populations through disease prevention and health promotion.
Our members are licensed medical doctors who possess expertise in a broad range of healthcare skills, including biostatistics, epidemiology,
management of healthcare organizations, research, and the practice of prevention in clinical settings. They work in a variety of settings in this country,
including hospitals, government at the local, state, and national levels, the military, laboratories, business, and academia.
I have just a few housekeeping tips. The audience has been placed in listen only mode, but we encourage you to type questions in the Q&A box throughout the session
as we'll be addressing these at the end. In addition, the recording will be posted in the ACPM Learning Management System in a couple of days. So if you want to listen to it again
or share it with friends, please do so. And at the end of our presentation, we will have a brief feedback survey so that you can express your ideas about this webinar,
as well as any additional topics you'd like us to consider moving forward.
Video Summary
The presentation discussed three key areas in preventive medicine: SMART on FIRE, EHR usage data, and digital contact tracing. SMART on FIRE is a technology that allows for the sharing of healthcare data and the development of EHR-agnostic applications. It uses common web standards and offers an easy way to access and share medical data. EHR usage data refers to the large amount of data captured by electronic health records, such as mouse clicks, keystrokes, and other activities. This data can be used to improve patient outcomes and reduce provider burnout. Digital contact tracing uses EHR data to detect potential contacts for infectious diseases. It has been used to track TB infections, study healthcare worker as vectors for VRE, and model social networks in hospitals. These technologies have the potential to improve healthcare and patient outcomes, but there are challenges to overcome, including getting electronic health record vendors to open their systems, ensuring privacy and security, and developing user-friendly applications. There is still much room for improvement and further study in these areas.
