Project Information

Cystic Fibrosis Patient Profile

Project Description: Cystic fibrosis is a chronic medical condition involving multiple body systems and requiring a complex treatment regimen for optimal medical management. There is much variation in understanding among the pediatric interns with regard to how to optimally manage cystic fibrosis. Much of the information with regard to the details of the treatment regimen for each cystic fibrosis patient is also difficult to find in the electronic medical record, if available in the electronic medical record at all. For this project we will place an editable table for each cystic fibrosis patient in an easy-to-find place in each electronic medical record patient chart that will contain the key details with regard to a given patient's cystic fibrosis management. It will be the responsibility of all involved providers to keep this chart updated as changes in the patient's treatment regimen occur. The chart should be checked/updated for each patient encounter.
