Bio

Dr. Phillips' research interests involve learning health systems and the intersection of technology and clinical informatics with clinical research for pediatric oncology patients. As a clinical informatician with expertise in the electronic health record, learning health systems, and secondary use of clinical data, his work focuses on reaching results that make a meaningful difference in delivery of care.

Dr. Phillips previously worked on several projects that required various methods of data extraction from an electronic health record beyond simple chart review. More recently, he created a successful method to screen oncology patients for malnutrition using data contained in the electronic health record. Dr. Phillips has secondary interests in quality improvement research for supportive care in pediatric oncology and in how patients and families obtain medical information online.

Recent research highlights for Dr. Phillips include being selected for a young investigator presentation at the Children's Oncology Group annual meeting for his work on automating pediatric malnutrition screens for oncology patients.
