My research focuses on quality of care and outcomes in treatment of chronic endocrine diseases. Our group utilizes advanced Medical Informatics technologies, including Natural Language Processing, to analyze electronic medical record data of thousands of patients to determine how we can improve care of patients with diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
Main directions of our research include:
a) optimal targets and strategies in treatment of diabetes and hypertension
b) adverse reactions to medications in chronic disease
c) lifestyle counseling in chronic illness in real-life medical practice
d) relationship of electronic documentation to patient outcomes
