Newsmaker: NLM Fellow Patrice Thorpe-Jamison

Masters Student and NLM Fellow Patrice-Thorpe Jamison and her adviser Steven Handler, MD, PhD recently learned that their work to determine the impact of a paper-based computer-generated rounding report in nursing homes was awarded AMDA Foundation/Pfizer Quality Improvement Award. The $7500 award will allow the team to continue to work towards an information system that improves physician efficiency and documentation completeness, while reducing some of the commonly reported barriers to providing patient care in the nursing home setting.
