Research Narrative:

My research focuses on the use of data science and informatics to measure and improve quality and safety of health care. This includes modeling and measuring medication safety, investigating order entry errors, implementing solutinos (such as the use of patient photos) to reduce wrong-patient errors, studying the mechanisms and risk factors leading to hospital-acquired infections such as C. diff. infections or catheter-association urinary tract infections (CAUTIs), and examining the role of electronic health record systems (EHRs) on provider behaviors as it relates to quality and safety outcomes.
