Professional Interests
As Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Family Medicine, I have a strong interest in primary care, access to care, and quality improvement in health services. I have over 20 years of health services research experience and have been actively involved in both performing research and disseminating research results to academic and practitioner audiences. I enjoy collaborative research projects and enjoy engaging clinicians in primary care research as well as mentoring junior faculty in their research endeavors. My current research projects involve studying new care models such as the Accountable Care Organization and the Patient-Centered Medical Home, exploring ways to create organizational and systems solutions to care delivery problems, and studying topics related to primary care quality improvement, information technology innovations in health care, and population health management. I am also actively engaged in management and organizational research in healthcare, including the areas of leadership development, organizational learning, and systems improvement.
