Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

The treatment team in an academic pediatric hospital medicine service changes often and, as a result, leaves many families confused about who their treatment team members are. As part of a health IT research project, we developed and piloted an inpatient electronic communication tool to help display the patient's treatment team with the use of pictures, names, titles, and role definitions. Results are currently being analyzed to assess outcomes on subjects' ability to identify their treatment team members correctly as well as the impact of the tool on satisfaction and perceptions of communication.
