This course provides an introduction to clinical informatics applied to multiple heath care settings from a rehabilitation perspective. It provides a context of challenges in the contemporary healthcare environment and conceptual frameworks to address these challenges and enhance value at population and patient levels. A model for translation of evidence into practice is used to explore the pivotal nature of clinical data by leveraging the electronic health record (EHR). Participants will compare real examples of collection and utilization of outcome measures and process measures, and learn key concepts to advocate for EHR build of data collection within feasible workflows. The course will differentiate between several healthcare professionals as our non-traditional partners to achieve value initiatives. A foundation is defined for data security, data privacy, and quality assurance for secondary use of EHR data. Participants will design an outcomes report and a process report. Lastly, EHR add-ons such as wearables and apps are demonstrated to add value to clinical programs.
