Publication Date
Jan 4, 2010

As described in this report, the project was aimed at developing a core survey that has the sensitivity to capture change over time in nursing homes' level of automation and, whether fielded in conjunction with the NNHS or through other means, will provide a valuable snapshot of nursing home HIT use while establishing a baseline from which to track future growth. The project also was aimed at producing an expanded survey useful for gathering greater detail on automated functions that are actively in use at nursing homes. The report also describes additional background information on the potential benefits and use of HIT in nursing homes; describes the literature review and technical expert panel work conducted under this project that shaped the development of the core and expanded surveys presented in this report; presents detailed information on the content of and administration recommendations for the core survey and the expanded survey; and discusses recommendations for pilot testing the surveys.
