ithout burdening physicians or their staffs."

A review of patients' charts concluded that only nine percent were assessed for depression before the symptom-screening system was implemented, compared with 73 percent afterward. The assessment rate for fatigue increased from 63 percent to 92 percent, and the assessment of pain increased from 76 percent to 97 percent.

"This study illustrates the value of health information technology, when properly designed with ongoing input from patients and providers, in improving patient outcomes and overall quality of care," said David K. Ahern, Ph.D., national program director of the Health e-Technologies Initiative, the National Program Office of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that sponsored the research.

A majority of physicians in the study reported that the system helped them identify patient problems, focus their patient interviews, track changes in patient symptoms, and document symptoms. Though the system increased the amount of time physicians spent discussing patients' symptoms, they were able to focus on significant side effects and decrease the time spent on unimportant symptoms.

More than half the patients in the study said the assessment helped them remember symptoms, and 44 percent said it helped them discuss symptoms with their physician.
