Cystic fibrosis, depression, anxiety, EMR, screening
The purpose of this project was to increase the rate of annual depression and anxiety screening in adult cystic fibrosis patients. Cystic fibrosis patients have a high rate of depression and anxiety (Quittner et al., 2014), and depression and anxiety have been associated with decreased quality of life and decreased health outcomes (Yohannes et al., 2012). Integration of screening tools into the electronic medical record (EMR) is associated with an increase in the number of patients screened (Sudhanthar et al., 2015). Depression and anxiety screening was integrated into the EMR of an adult cystic fibrosis clinic. Retrospective chart review evaluated data and determined the number of patients screened for depression and anxiety pre and post EMR integration. The integration of depression and anxiety screening into the EMR did not increase the percentage of patients screened annually for depression and anxiety in this cystic fibrosis center.
