Treatment Effectiveness

Study Objectives

3 Primary · 1 Secondary · Reporting Duration: Through study completion, or up to 1 year

Year 1
Determining the effect of problem list completion by comparing the number of study-related problems added to problem lists in the electronic health record
Determining the quality of care impact of adding suggested problems to the problem list based on 4 outcome measures from NCQA's HEDIS 2013 measure set
Evaluating process measures using key process measures for each study condition from CMS, NHLBI, and NQMC
Measuring the rate of acceptance of alerts calculated by number of acceptances for each alert divided by the total number of unique presentations of the alert

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
