Using Information Systems To Promote Prevention Using Information Systems To Promote Prevention
Many Americans do not receive recommended preventive care services, and lack of preventive care can affect health outcomes and lead to increased use of health care services.

The featured Innovations describe ways that health information technologies can be used to enhance provision of preventive services, including a program that enables standing orders for vaccinations and screenings, a system that encourages Medicare patients to schedule their Annual Wellness Visit, and an interactive preventive health record that identifies specific care needs for patients.

The featured QualityTools include a smartphone application to promote healthy weight and tools to improve adherence to guidelines for electronic and interactive preventive health records.
