Research Summary:

Informatics Focus

My work in Quality Improvement has paralleled my informatics work and has focused on invasive device (central lines, urinary catheters) utilization and provider awareness of these devices.  We designed and published original work on the “Idle central venous catheter” which has been widely cited.  Provider checklists, daily rounds, multidisciplinary team rounds have all been utilized in my work on hospital acquired conditions.  As the only hospitalist on HICPAC I am in a unique position to bring the perspective of hospital medicine clinical workflows to the national stage as new Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection Guidelines are under development by our group this year.
