Algorithm uses EHR to distinguish care from nurses, physicians
from Clinical-Innovation + Technology
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have developed an algorithm capable of extracting data from patient electronic health records (EHRs) to show the difference in care provided by physicians and nurses. Findings were published online Feb. 9 in the International Journal of Medical Informatics. Physicians and nurses have a collabrative relationship when it comes to patient care and provide specific care based on their role. In this study, researchers used computer technology to compare patient care provided by nurses and physicians using EHR data.
