The Healthy Weight Care Assistant

PI: Jeremy Michel, MD, MHS

During the 2 month period that this CDS was active there was a 17 percentage-point increase in comorbidity screening (61% to 88%), a 7 percentage-point increase in overweight status recognition (21% to 28%), and a 4 percentage-point increase in obesity recognition (81% to 85%). Based on the improvement we noted during the pilot, we know that weight status recognition and comorbidity screening rates can improve. We are working to develop this CDS on a system wide level.
