UCSF, Cedars-Sinai partner on researching EHR interventions for kidney injuries

Researchers at San Francisco-based UCSF Health and Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai have collaborated on a study assessing the effectiveness of an EHR contrast tool to predict the risk of kidney injury for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions.

The EHR tool could predict kidney injury with an accuracy of 64.1 percent but resulted in no change in rates of acute kidney injury. The health systems partnered with data company Biome Analytics on the study, according to a Feb. 1 Biome news release. 

The study results were published in the American Heart Association's journal.
