Research Summary

My research activities are in the area of physician and hospital performance measures. My work dates back to 1993 and has involved a number of national performance measurement projects with the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA). Most recently I have been a facilitator/consultant for all the performance measurement workgroups of the AMA sponsored Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (PCPI). This includes measures that have been developed in the following clinical areas; Adult Diabetes, Anesthesiology, Asthma, Atrial Fibrillation, Child and Adolescent Major Depressive Disorder, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Chronic Stable Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), Community-acquired Bacterial Pneumonia, Emergency Medicine, End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), Eye Care, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Geriatrics, Heart Failure, Hematology, Hepatitis C, Hypertension, Major Depressive Disorder, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Otitis Externa / Otitis Media with Effusion, Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy, Pediatric Acute Gastroenteritis, Perioperative Care, Prenatal Care, Preventive Care and Screening, Prostate Cancer, Skin Cancer, Stroke and Stroke Rehabilitation. The measures currently proposed for the CMS Physician Voluntary Reporting Program (PVRP) are derived almost entirely from these measure sets. I am also the UIHC physician lead for implementation of the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) which is a risk adjusted surgical outcome measurement project. My future interest is in the development and testing of point of care standardized electronic data collection and decision support to facilitate performance measurement reporting and quality improvement. The goal would be to avoid the need for any retrospective data collection in addition to maximizing performance.
