Overview
The goal of my research program is to improve care quality and health outcomes for hospitalized children. Our focus areas include: 1) growing and synthesizing the evidence base around care of common diagnoses among hospitalized children, 2) accelerating the pace at which evidence is broadly implemented into care, and 3) better leveraging quality improvement efforts to advance health equity. I am currently supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and private foundations. I also help steer the AAP's Value in Inpatient Pediatrics Network and the Pediatric Research in Inpatient Settings Network.
