NIGMS/NIH U54GM104938 (Nagykaldi PI)  08/01/13 – 07/31/18
“Limited Competition: Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Program Infrastructure for Clinical and Translational Research”
We propose to strengthen productive bidirectional relationships between researchers and communities in Oklahoma with an emphasis on primary care clinicians, pharmacists, and American Indian communities, expand community test sites by enhancing three practice-based research networks and build a system-wide dissemination/ implementation/diffusion infrastructure consisting of county health improvement organizations (CHIOs) linked to each other and, through regional coordinating centers, to the academic research partners.
Role: Co-Investigator

Disseminating Patient Centered Outcomes Research to Improve Healthcare Delivery
1R18HS023237-01  Nagykaldi (PI)  07/01/2014 – 06/30/2018
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)  $1,340,397
Propose to implement a sustainable, county-based preventive services delivery model that aligns incentives for primary care practices (PCPs), county health departments (CHDs), and hospitals in 3 rural counties. Wellness coordinators will remind patients of recommended primary (immunizations), secondary (screening), and tertiary (chronic disease management) services and direct them to the most appropriate services and resources. Primary care practices will implement systematic screening for tobacco use and physical inactivity and provide brief counseling and referrals.
Role: PI

HHSA290200710009  (Mold PI)  09/15/2009 – 09/30/2012
AHRQ – Task Order #17
Using Health Information Technology to Improve Healthcare Quality in Primary Care Practices and in Transitions Between Care Settings
The goal of this project is to connect primary care practices, that are already using electronic health records and are linked through a local health information exchange hub, to a regional health information organization called SMRTNET, which will provide access to a broader range of information, from a variety of sources, including hospital records, laboratory tests, pharmacy records, and a statewide immunization registry. It is anticipated that access to this additional health care information will reduce unnecessary laboratory testing, improve medication reconciliation, reduce hospital readmissions, decrease some practice administrative costs, and improve patient satisfaction with continuity of care.
Role: Co-Investigator

RFA-HS-08-003   (Scheid PI)  06/01/2008 – 08/31/2011
Modeling Prioritization of Health Care for Complex Patients Using Archimedes
The major goal is to investigate the comparative calculated efficacy of combinations of recommended interventions for hypothetical patients with diabetes mellitus type II, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia using Archimedes, a complex simulation model that uses differential equations and other formulas from regression and decision methods.
Role: PI

Women's Emotional and Rational Response to High Risk HPV
The major goals of this project are to design and conduct a study of women after receipt of results of an HPV gene test, of high versus low risk, or no HPV. The study will address women's interpretation of the meaning of the diagnosis with respect to cancer risk and sexual relationships. White, African American, and Indian participants will be involved.
Role: Co-Investigator

Individualized Computerized Balance Sheets to Support the Decision to Screen for Breast Cancer
The major goals of this project are to run a focus group with women in their 40's concerning breast cancer screening, developed a computerized balance sheet on the mammography decision including calculation of the individual woman's risk of getting breast cancer, and run a study to determine the effects of the balance sheet on women's intentions to be screened for breast cancer as well as on their actual screening behavior in the subsequent 6 months.
Role: PI

TS 281 14/14-16   (Hamm PI)  09/30/1998 – 09/29/2002

Efficacy of Balance Sheets in Prostate Cancer Screening Decisions
The major goals of this project are to develop a paper balance sheet on the prostate cancer screening decision, based on a decision analysis we conducted, and run a study to determine the effects of the balance sheet on men's intentions to be screened for prostate cancer as well as on their actual screening behavior in the subsequent 6 months.
Role: Co-Investigator
