Charlotte Woods-Hill, MD, MSHP is an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Her broad areas of interest are the intersection of healthcare resource utilization, diagnostic stewardship, and implementation science, as it relates to preventable pediatric patient harm and pediatric patient safety. She is the primary co-investigator of the BrighT STAR collaborative, an ongoing multicenter project studying the impact of innovative diagnostic stewardship strategies on antibiotic use in critically ill children. BrighT STAR results have been published in high-impact journals, such as JAMA Pediatrics, and this work served as the foundation for her subsequent K23 career development award from NHLBI. She has received funding from the NIH, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the MITRE Corporation, and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Microbiome Center. As an implementation science mentor, she has supported trainees through successful grant proposals to the Thrasher Foundation and the Leonard Davis Institute. Dr. Woods-Hill has published her work in leading pediatric and critical care journals, and regularly speaks at national meetings as an emerging expert on both diagnostic stewardship and implementation science in the critical care environment. She also founded and co-leads the first-ever national research collaborative focused on implementation science for pediatric research, called ECLIPSE, as a part of the PALISI (Pediatric Acute Injury and Sepsis Investigators) Network.
