Principal Investigator

Wendy J. Tomlin-Hess Endowed Professor


My primary research interest is the effect of health system design on quality of care and outcomes for sick newborns. This interest includes health care delivery design at the macro-system level as well as organizational context at the hospital and neonatal intensive care unit level. In addition, I am interested in the use of information technology to support families, care professionals, and policy makers in their efforts to provide optimal care to sick infants.
