  1. Resource Description
    "To meet the challenge of improving health care quality in safety net clinics whose patients have a predominance of chronic diseases such as diabetes, we have developed a new, information system called CEDRIC. CEDRIC is a database-backed, Web-based system for managing chronic diseases in primary care safety net settings. It is implemented in C# and Java and utilizes the MySQL database management system, a robust, open-source database platform that is appropriate for community health centers that may not be able to keep up with the licensing costs of using proprietary database-management systems. The CEDRIC development project takes into account sociotechnical barriers to successful clinical information system implementation and forges academic-community partnerships with safety net clinics that often have a high physician turnover and a large uninsured/underinsured and homeless patient population. CEDRIC is designed to support workflow practices in community health centers, provide alerts and recommendations to physicians based on applicable clinical practice guidelines, and supply point-of-care summary reports regarding clinic encounters. In addition to producing patient-level summary reports that inform care continuity during clinic encounters, CEDRIC also includes functionality that enables disease-specific population-based summaries of outcomes, provider practices, and required patient outreach activities. The first incarnation of the system focuses on diabetes management and has been developed in a partnership between the Center for Biomedical Informatics and clinicians in the Family Medicine Clinic at the Hubert H. Humphrey Comprehensive Health Center in South Los Angeles."
