Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Schutte-Rodin’s research interests and activities include: electronic health record (EHR) uses, novel HL7 integration of CPAP and sleep study data into Epic, patient reported outcomes (PRO’s) and EHR patient portal questionnaires, uses of EHR-based reports and patient communications, EHR “big data” outcomes, consumer sleep and medical technologies, CPAP compliance/adherence and outcomes, CPAP masks/devices and data tracking technologies, sleep (process and outcomes) Quality Measures development and (cms) implementation, insomnia and other sleep disorders. She was the PI for a large CPAP clinical trial involving a comparison of mask designs, patient preferences, and outcomes and is currently involved with the use of mindfulness for CPAP mask claustrophobia.

Description of Clinical Expertise

Board certified in Sleep Medicine for more than 20 years, Dr. Schutte-Rodin’s patients have included those with all types of sleep disorders (apnea, insomnia, restless legs, sleep-related movement disorders, circadian rhythm disorders, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders). Dr. Schutte-Rodin is one of the only US MDs who is both boarded in Sleep Medicine and certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine. Dr. Schutte-Rodin developed the Penn CPAP Program and Penn CPAP Clinic with on-site integrated “team" patient care. CPAP chronic management is labor intensive, requires a team of support staff partnering with patients and their DMEs, and requires interfacing CPAP softwares/databases and long term CPAP data tracking. Now the standard of CPAP data tracking, the Penn Sleep Centers was one of the first US sleep centers to network on-line CPAP data. As the Clinical Outcomes Program Director of the Penn Sleep Centers, Dr. Schutte-Rodin's group developed EHR portal (Patient Reported Outcomes) questionnaires and also HL7 interfaced CPAP data into Epic. Goals of the Epic-based sleep data infrastructure uses are: (1) to use EHR's and technology to improve patient communications, data management, and EHR visit documentation (2) to identify high risk patients (3) to establish Quality Measures benchmarks and quality care improvements (4) to systematically collect and use “big data” for clinical, QA, and research outcomes.
