CPCSSN HSU Demonstration Project Implementing a Scalable Tool for Quality Improvement in Primary Care: Benefits Evaluation

This project was designed to test the implementation of tools and processes designed to further the transformation of data from primary care EMRs into usable information for the management and surveillance of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. The project demonstrated that the implementation of an information management infrastructure at NYFHT, including the Data Presentation Tool and EMR data improved by Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN), was feasible, usable, provided clinical value and is likely scalable for other primary care settings.
