Kevin Wright

Senior Developer of the DSS Patient Search Tool


Webinar Overview
 The DSS Patient Search Tool and Launcher were developed as part of the Veterans Affairs Innovation Initiative (VAi2) in collaboration with the North Florida/ South Georgia VAMC in Gainesville, FL. Innovation Initiatives are designed to spur innovation within VA by providing opportunities to partner with the best of the private sector and solve the Department's most pressing challenges. The DSS Patient Search Tool is a VistA EHR extension to the Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) that solves a major problem for clinicians by allowing them to identify and isolate text data within a patient’s record in real time. Discrete and free text data buried deep in the patient’s notes, orders, problems, and meds take valuable clinical time and effort, but the DSS Patient Search Tool can retrieve this information in moments, which is a powerful tool for enhancing patient-centered care. Without the DSS Patient Search Tool, the information stored in a patient record as free text can be difficult to find or missed entirely as patients are seen over a period of time. The launcher will enable CPRS to seamlessly run the Patient Search Tool within a patient record.
