Clinical Decision Support for Newcomer Health
Health care, public health, and informatics professionals in Philadelphia, Denver, and Minnesota worked with national experts to identify opportunities for electronic health record (EHR) improvement and evidence-based, standardized care for newly-arrived refugees and other newcomers.
This Center of Excellence collaboration led to the creation of the Refugee Health Decision Support tools.
- Refugee Health Decision Support
Order sets, documentation templates, and supporting resources available for download at no cost via the Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Connect repository from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
