I am a researcher in Quality Measurement and Outcomes. My primary research focuses on evaluation of outcomes of care for patients with cardiovascular conditions including:
- Patient-reported Outcome measures as indicators of quality
- Evaluating the impact of unmeasured confounders on quality measures for acute myocardial infarction and heart failure.
- Understanding outcomes of in-hospital cardiac arrest
- Understanding outcomes for patients with acute myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock

URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience.
