Diameter Health’s John D’Amore Contributes to Study Validating a Clinical Decision Support Risk-Prediction Tool for Chronic Kidney Disease
Farmington, CT – A study validating the use of interoperable documents and open-source technology components to develop a low-cost tool for automated clinical decision support was published today in the leading journal for medical informatics, JAMIA (Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association). The study leveraged structured clinical data from CCDs, to enable the automation of a risk-prediction model. This approach was designed to increase use of the model by saving clinician time, and reducing data entry errors. Lipika Samal, MD MPH (Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School) was the lead author on the publication, while John D’Amore, MS, and President and CTO of Diameter Health, is a contributing author.
“In this study, Dr. Samal demonstrates the feasibility of using standard data and technology components to predict the risk of kidney failure,” stated John D’Amore. “The findings show that clinical decision support informed by good data and well integrated with physician workflow are fundamental to success.“
“This study provides further validation of Diameter Health’s strategy and the need for efficient and scalable technology to manage and leverage the wealth of data in clinical documents” observed Eric Rosow, CEO of Diameter Health.
The Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association published the work and it is freely available online.
