RESEARCH INTERESTS
Dr. Agarwal's research interests include ACHD and Cardio-Obstetrics outcomes research aimed to reduce mortality, morbidity, and to improve quality of life. She has been using big data to help understand the health care needs of this patient population (especially related to health care costs, service use and impact of insurance policies) and inform health policies. She co-led the design and implementation of the first National longitudinal patient-powered digital adult CHD registry to understand patient needs and help drive research, and is the CO-PI of the PCORI grant to link the patient reported data from the registry to patients electronic health records. More recently, she has been working on developing and testing digital interventions to promote patient engagement in navigating the adult system to access specialized ACHD care. Her primary goal is to promote patient empowerment and patient engagement to improve health outcomes.
