Core Investigator, VA HSR&D Center of Excellence on Implementing Evidence-Based Practice
Dr. Saleem received his PhD from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech in 2003, specializing in human factors engineering. He is Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Research Scientist with the IU Center for Health Services and Outcomes Research, the VA HSR&D Center of Excellence on Implementing Evidence-Based Practice, and Regenstrief Institute's Center for Health Services Research. Dr. Saleem is a current VA Career Development Awardee, as well as a member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) and the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA).
Since joining the health services research community in 2007, Dr. Saleem has led the development and implementation of the Human-Computer Interaction Information Technology Laboratory in the VA Center of Excellence. His current research involves application of human factors engineering and human computer interaction to enhance clinical information systems, including electronic decision support, as well as redesign of healthcare processes for improved safety. Dr. Saleem’s currently proposed VA Merit Review Investigator Initiated Research (IIR) expands the investigation of VA consultation management to additional VA Medical Centers and specifically provider teamwork and communication exchanges to understand effective strategies. Dr. Saleem expects this work will be generalizable to other healthcare organizations.

“Circumventing Health IT: Identifying Patient Safety Risks” (PI)
The purpose of this study is to understand workarounds to VA health IT, their potential impact on patient safety, and design strategies to better support the needs of clinicians and improve patient safety. There are three specific aims: (1) Identify workarounds to CPRS and related health IT that have potential to result in patient harm; (2) Develop system and EHR-level design improvements to eliminate or mitigate use of workarounds for improved patient safety; (3) Test design improvements in a simulated setting to demonstrate improved system and EHR usability.

“Understanding Variations in CPRS Use Among Primary Care Clinicians” (PI: Rich Frankel)
The objective of this proposal is to understand variations in the use of CPRS-enabled exam room computers and how use or non-use affects patient-centered communication and clinical workflow during outpatient primary care visits. We have two specific aims: (1) Describe variations in how providers employ CPRS during ambulatory care encounters at 3 VA facilities; and (2) Identify barriers and facilitators to the integration of CPRS into routine ambulatory care workflow. Role: Co-Principal
III. VA HSR&D IIR 04/01/2010 – 09/30/2012
"Improving Transfers of Care in VA Nursing and Medical Services" (PI: Rich Frankel)
The objective of this proposal is to understand variations in the use of CPRS- enabled exam room computers and how use or non-use affects patient-centered communication and clinical workflow during outpatient primary care visits. Role: Co-Investigator
