Consolidate Existing Evidence Base of HIS Models, Methods and Metrics
To advance HIS knowledge, the eHealth Observatory will consolidate existing evidence of HIS knowledge with relevant published conceptual HIS models, research methods and measurement metrics.
HIS Adoption, Use and Impacts
We have updated our collection to 60+ systematic reviews appraising 2,000+ studies on HIS adoption/use and impact. A meta-synthesis of these systematic reviews is underway to provide a corpus of high quality conceptual HIS models, evaluation methods, measurement metrics and findings that will provide the evidence base for our HIS evaluation methodology toolkit.
Benchmark eDrug capabilities
Systematic reviews of the literature will be undertaken as an initial step in the MedRec, EMR and iEHR studies. The MedRec systematic review is well underway and focuses on the impact of health information systems (HIS) on medication reconciliation during transition points, in terms of processes and outcomes. These systematic reviews will help identify best practices to inform benchmarking aspects of our evaluation studies.
