Junior Faculty Sabbatical

Overview
My research in the field of health care management and policy focuses on how organizational leadership and culture impact efforts to implement health delivery innovations, integrate patient care, and improve performance of health care organizations. A key feature of this research is the development of survey instruments that measure provider and patient perspectives on key interpersonal and organizational factors, enabling benchmarking and comparative effectiveness studies, rapid and reliable feedback about the effectiveness of delivery system innovations, and broader dissemination of more successful interventions. In my work, I use organizational and leadership theory and mixed quantitative and qualitative methods.

I developed and teach a course at the Harvard School of Public Health, entitled Health Care Organizations and Organizational Behavior: Leadership and Management for Learning, Innovation, and Performance Improvement, which is offered twice a year. I also teach in the Harvard PhD in Health Policy core course on the subject of “Patient Safety, Safety Culture and Safety Leadership.” In addition, I serve as advisor or dissertation committee member for Masters and Doctoral students at the School of Public Health and for junior faculty recipients of career development awards.

Previously I co-founded and served as Executive Director for the Center for Health Policy at Stanford, where I was also a Senior Research Scholar and Lecturer (1993-2003). I also served as Staff Director for the California Managed Care Improvement Task Force (1997-98), a Senior Legislative Assistant for Health Policy in the US House of Representative (1994), and Health Policy Analyst at the Office of Management and Budget (1992).

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
