Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality funds KP study of electronic records for heart disease
Date:12/17/2007

December 17, 2007 (Oakland, Calif.)

Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death and disability in the United States and one of the fastest rising causes of death and disability in the world.

The methodology of using KP HealthConnect to improve healthcare outcomes is being examined as a model by a growing number of researchers nationwide, several health systems and the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

This very critical project will add substantially to our understanding of how to more effectively use electronic medical records to expand our ability to measure and improve quality of care," said Greg Pawlson, M.D., M.P.H., executive vice president of National Committee for Quality Assurance, an organization that has played a leading role in developing measures and reporting on physician and health plan performance. "In addition, the area of prevention and management of cardiovascular disease presen
