REimagine EHR

ReImagine EHR is a national and international leader in provider-facing digital health innovations integrated with electronic health record (EHR) systems, with over $38 million in external funding and over 20 innovations deployed in clinical settings.

We are leveraging the evolution of EHRs into platforms for third-party innovations. Just as smartphones can be enhanced by various apps downloaded from app stores, EHRs can now be enhanced by various digital health innovations that can be interfaced with the EHR using interoperability frameworks such as the Health Level Seven International (HL7) FHIR, SMART, and CDS Hooks standards. We provide cognitive support to clinicians and patients by intelligently integrating relevant information, providing personalized guidance, and facilitating the completion of needed tasks such as ordering interventions and documenting the care provided. In short, we seek to make it easy for every patient to receive the right care, every time.

digital health initiative

The University of Utah’s (U of U’s) Digital Health Initiative (DHI) aims to transform health care and bring joy to patients and healthcare teams across the nation through disruptive digital innovations. DHI will leverage the U of U’s world-renowned expertise in playful engagement, standards-based interoperability, and participatory design. DHI serves as a hub and catalyst for research, promoting the development and commercialization of transformative digital technologies. With past and current collaborations across the health science and main campus, public and private institutions in the state, and national and international partners in both academia and private industry, DHI establishes the U of U as one of the leading institutions, if not the leading institution, in the rapidly growing field of digital health. DHI aims to achieve the quintuple aim of health care: a joyful patient experience, improved outcomes, affordable and accessible health care, a flourishing work environment for clinical care teams, and health equity. 

Sociotechnical Systems and Implementation Science Research Group

We are a collaborative of scientists interested in the human, social, and organizational dimensions of clinical informatics and digital health. Our backgrounds include clinical informatics and social, cognitive, health, and computer sciences. We are committed to advancing scientific knowledge of how people and technology mutually influence healthcare systems. We draw on qualitative and quantitative methods from the paradigms of user-centered and participatory design, implementation science, human factors engineering, human-computer interaction, technology assessment, and impact assessment. Our work contributes to theory and concept development across disciplines. We foster training opportunities for students and post-doctoral fellows with sociotechnical interests and seek out meaningful scientific collaborations and relationships with our colleagues at the University of Utah and beyond.
