Dr. Solan has a broad interest in improving the way providers communicate with each other and with families. Dr. Solan has a special interest in patient transitions home after hospital discharge and the communication and handoff processes that surround that event. Dr. Solan served as a site co-investigator for the IIPE-PRIS Accelerating Safe Signouts (I-PASS) study in Cincinnati. She was also a study team member for a Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute grant that evaluated the experiences of families transitioning home after a child's hospitalization, modified a nurse-led transitional home visit program, and evaluated the efficacy of the new transitional home visit program on patient-centered outcomes. Dr. Solan was funded by a University of Rochester CTSI KL2 Career Development Grant from 2017- 2019; investigating how to predict which pediatric patients are at greatest risk for hospital readmission or Emergency Department revisit.
