Personal profile

Area of Expertise

When working in the private sector, I examined issues related to comorbid behavioral health and physical health conditions as well as quality of and access to care. My work in these areas is continuing now that I am in academia. I am conducting research identifying patient and system characteristics associated with adherence to certain National Committee for Quality Assurance HEDIS measures. Additionally, I am exploring the relationship between behavioral health issues and potentially preventable hospitalizations.
In September 2017, I joined the SaferCare Texas Patient Safety Institute at UNTHSC as part of a multidisciplinary team focused on identifying and addressing the risks associated with medical treatment in order to improve patient outcomes. I am also co-investigator for the UNTHSC site of the CDC’s Tuberculosis Epidemiologic Studies Consortium (TBESC). In this role I am partnering with physicians, pharmacists, and other public health researchers in mining administrative and nationally-representative health survey data to quantify the latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) care continuum, including identifying and measuring testing and treatment already occurring in the private sector healthcare system. In doing so, we are shedding light on the potential to advance domestic tuberculosis elimination by increasing well-targeted LTBI testing and treatment by private sector healthcare providers.
