Recently, we generated a new multidisciplinary ubiquitous healthcare system by upgrading our clinical decision supporting system (CDSS) rule engine, and integrating a physical activity-monitoring device and dietary feedback into a comprehensive package. We hypothesize that individualized multidisciplinary u-healthcare service combined with exercise monitoring and dietary feedback will result in better glucose control with less hypoglycemia in an elderly population.
Ubiquitous healthcare service for elderly patients with type 2 diabetes provides real-time glycemic monitoring and glucose control implemented by clinical decision support system (CDSS) using wire and wireless communication and information technology. To evaluate the clinical efficacy of this system, researchers plan to compare the improvement of glycemic control, self-management, and quality of life among three study groups: control, self glucose monitoring, and U-healthcare ...
Medical staff will be screened for MRSA and ESBL (including: doctors, nurses, nurse aids, physical therapists, dietitians, Janitors and other medical staff). PURPOSE: To define the carriage of, and risk factors for carriage of resistant organisms among healthcare employees of carriers of resistant bacteria. To define activities of healthcare employees who likely to lead to dissemination of resistant bacteria in rehabilitation centers.
This pilot research trial studies minority patients receiving care at the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University (CCCWFU) to see what their attitudes are regarding the healthcare they receive and how much they know about clinical trials. Clinical trials are an important way to test healthcare treatments and need diverse participants to be most effective. Studying what minority patients think about healthcare and clinical trials may help researchers learn more abo...
The oral cavity is mostly influenced by general health. The oral microbiota which is as complex as the gastro-intestinal or vaginal microbiota are considered to be difficult therapeutic targets. The effects of probiotics in different fields of health care have resulted recently in the introduction of probiotics for oral healthcare. Probiotics have been clinically proved effective in different fields of oral healthcare such as ...
This Clinical Trial is being conducted to study Hypophosphatasia (HPP), a bone disorder caused by gene mutations or changes. These gene mutations cause low levels of an enzyme needed to harden bone. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the study drug called ENB-0040 and see what effects is has on human infants and HPP. The study will also look at differences in injecting the drug into a vein with a needle (intravenously) and injecting it under the surface of the ...
The purpose of this study is the creation of a PBRN that will comprise primary care providers, community health organizations, community advocates and a research core of two academic institutions in order to study the healthcare needs of a rapidly growing immigrant population.
This Clinical Trial is being conducted to study Hypophosphatasia (HPP), a bone disorder caused by gene mutations or changes. These gene mutations cause low levels of an enzyme needed to harden bone. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of ENB-0040 and see what effects it has on humans and HPP. The study will also look at differences in injecting the drug into a vein with a needle (intravenously) and injecting it under the surface of the skin (subcutaneously).
This clinical trial is being conducted to study hypophosphatasia (HPP), a bone disorder caused by gene mutations or changes. These gene mutations cause low levels of an enzyme needed to harden bone. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and efficacy of two doses of the study drug called ENB-0040 as compared to a control group to see what effects it has adolescents and adults with HPP.
Bundling infection control interventions should decrease incidence of Healthcare-Associated Infections in General Medical Wards at Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand
The study's aim is to provide information about the clinical and business cases for comprehensive interactive cancer communication systems (ICCS) in the context of real world use for cancer care. This study will be conducted within the Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) healthcare system. Outcomes for this study include amount of ICCS use and women's ratings of cancer information competence, perceived social support, and emotional well being. Secondary outcomes will in...
The purpose of this study is to assess usage of the virtual health record (VHR), and determine the effects of this technology on healthcare utilization.
The accuracy of tuberculin skin test (TST) for detecting latent tuberculosis is limited in countries with a high proportion of population having received vaccination with the BCG. We aim to determine the cost-effectiveness of Quantiferon gold (QTFG), compared to BCG vaccine to detect latent tuberculosis in exposed healthcare workers (HCWs)
Interactions between patients and healthcare providers may have a significant impact on a patient's response to therapy. In this study, patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee will receive either acupuncture or sham acupuncture. The acupuncturists will be trained to interact with the patients in specific ways. The study will evaluate those interactions.
Evaluate access to healthcare, comprehension of pre-operative counseling and post-operative goals of women treated for vesicovaginal fistula in Niger through use of a questionnaire.
Main objective: To improve diabetes outcomes among Mexican-Americans with diabetes through church-based, culturally tailored, diabetes self-management interventions linked to the local healthcare system. Specific Aim: To pilot test a church-based, culturally tailored diabetes self-management intervention to improve diabetes outcomes among low-income Mexican-American with diabetes H1 A church-based diabetes self-care management curriculum partnered with the local healthc...
Persons with dementia and their caregivers are often cared for in the community through home healthcare (HHC). While these patients and their caregivers need significant help and often have difficulty maintaining their quality of life, home healthcare clinicians are often unprepared to care for this population. This study will therefore examine the ability of an integrated, multi-pronged evidence-based practice intervention for home healthcare registered nurses, occupational th...
The objective of this study is to estimate the costs of empiric antibiotic therapy and hospitalization costs for patients with a complicated intra-abdominal infection, and to assess the impact of treatment failure of initial antibiotic empiric therapy on pharmacological and total healthcare costs for these patients in Greece.
We will obtain data from the robust Agency for Healthcare Reimbursement and Quality (AHRQ) Healthcare Utilization Project (HCUP), as well as from the State of Tennessee. If our hypotheses are true, such data will provide strong evidence that Medicaid disenrollment has a negetive health impact on uninsured populations. The data may also provide evidence for increased public funding of safety-net EDs after Medicaid disenrollment.
Overtreatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ABU) is a quality, safety, and cost issue, particularly as unnecessary antibiotics lead to emergence of resistant pathogens. Our proposal to bring clinical practice in line with published guidelines has significant potential to reduce unnecessary antibiotic use for ABU in the VA healthcare system, thus improving the quality and safety of veterans' healthcare. Our study will also provide important insights about how to implement and sus...
The aim of this study is to explore the effect of substituting General Practitioners (GPs) by Physician Assistants (PAs) in out-of-hours primary care. Effects are measured in terms of the implication for the care model, quality of care delivered by PAs in comparison to GPs; the complaints treated by PAs in comparison to GPs; safety, efficiency and patient satisfaction. Lastly, this study will provide insight in the changes in costs of healthcare.

Narcotic pain medicines bind mu-opioid receptors in the bowel and delay the return of normal function. Alvimopan is a peripherally acting mu-opioid receptor antagonist that blocks mu-opioid receptors in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract but does not compromise central nervous system-mediated opioid-based analgesia. Length of stay (LOS) is an important surrogate measure of quality after colon surgery and the most common reason for prolonged LOS after abdominal surgery is delayed G...
