Biographical Info

As Director of the Center of Health Care Research and Policy, I have a strong commitment to its two-fold mission to use multi-disciplinary methods to improve the care and value of health care delivery and to lead educational programs that promote these goals. Center faculty use northeast Ohio as a learning laboratory to these ends. This approach generates actionable and generalizable knowledge for other large urban areas throughout the nation. My grounding in primary care, quantitative methods, and the design and evaluation of clinical decision support tools help me contribute best to the Center’s population health and research informatics programs. My leadership in northeast Ohio’s health improvement collaborative – Better Health Partnership – provides researchers access to a large and diverse network of providers and other stakeholders who are committed to improving health care and outcomes at affordable costs. Mining the related clinical and socio-demographic data has enabled us to inform policy and achieve these goals.
