I am an internationally recognized nursing informaticist and clinical expert with more than 25 years of research and clinical practice leadership. My program of research is focused on technologies used to support patient care delivery, with an emphasis on aging populations. I lead an AHRQ-funded R01 to benchmark national trends in information technology adoption and the impact on quality measures in nursing homes. As a Fulbright U.S. Scholar in 2017, I worked with an Australian research team to investigate IT use as it related to resident care, clinical support, and quality measures in a sample of nursing homes in New South Wales.
My book, An Introduction to Clinical Health Information Technology for Long Term/Post-Acute Care (LTPAC) Settings, shows how research identifies and promotes evidence toward new models of care, including technology implementation trends and safety and quality impacts for long-term and post-acute settings.
