I study quality of care and patient outcomes in healthcare delivery systems, largely focusing on cardiovascular diseases. I use large national and regional data sets to answer fundamental questions about current healthcare delivery systems and how new approaches to designing these systems could save lives and reduce disease burden in large patient populations. My research includes the use of innovative data mining and machine learning tools.
As Director of the Michigan Integrated Center for Health Analytics and Medical Prediction (MiCHAMP), I collaborate with multidisciplinary investigators on predictive modeling and precision medicine initiatives. http://michamp.med.umich.edu/; http://midas.umich.edu/research/health/mchamp/
I have received funding from AHRQ, NIH, VA HSR&D and the BCBS Foundation of Michigan and participated on NIH and VA study sections targeting health services research.
I am Editor-in-Chief of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality & Outcomes, a leading cardiovascular outcomes research journal published by the American Heart Association.
