Abstract

The CDC Division of Injury Prevention (DIP) has contracted with NORC to determine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a clinical falls prevention initiative, called STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries). To determine the feasibility of implementing STEADI in real world primary care settings, NORC is working with Emory Healthcare, a large primary care system in Atlanta to implement the full STEADI initiative and two abridged versions.

Main Content

The CDC Division of Injury Prevention (DIP) has contracted with NORC to determine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a clinical falls prevention initiative, called STEADI (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries). To determine the feasibility of implementing STEADI in real world primary care settings, NORC is working with Emory Healthcare, a large primary care system in Atlanta to implement the full STEADI initiative and two abridged versions.

As part of this collaboration, NORC is working to incorporate elements of STEADI into the health system’s electronic health record (EHR), collecting baseline data on patient fall history and fall-related clinical practices, and documenting experiences implementing the initiative. Using this information, in addition to medical and fall history data collected from patients and secondary data from administrative records and EHRs, NORC will determine the intervention’s impact on falls, costs, and other health outcomes. To determine whether less-resource intense versions of the intervention have similarly preventive benefits, NORC will compare the impacts of the full STEADI to that of the abridged versions.

NORC is also conducting a related project titled Assessing Patient and Provider Adherence to Clinical Fall Prevention Strategies, which builds on the STEADI evaluation. The project is conducting follow-up interviews with patients enrolled in the study on a number of important domains, including falls. This will provide information that is important to understand the effect and costs of the STEADI Initiative.
