Hospital medicine

Early recognition of deteriorating pediatric inpatients

Clinical decision support in the electronic health record

Clinical informatics

My broad clinical research interest is evaluating the effectiveness and unintended consequences of systems intended to improve patient safety for hospitalized children.

Specific areas of focus include:
-Rapid Response Systems
-Medical Emergency Teams
-Early Warning Scores
-Physiologic Monitoring Systems
-Alarm Fatigue
-Electronic Health Records
-Mobile Health (mHealth) Interventions
