Research Summary

My research focuses on the interface of interventional cardiology and health services research. Advances in technology have greatly expanded the diagnostic and therapeutic options available to interventional cardiologists. Currently, however, systematic efforts to monitor the diffusion of these novel technologies, assess the safety and effectiveness of these therapies outside the setting of clinical trials, and ensure that new technologies are being applied in the most efficient and efficacious manner have fallen behind the pace of discovery. Critically examining the practice of interventional cardiology is a key step to improving the quality of care delivered to patients with coronary artery disease.

Specialized Terms: Interventional cardiology; Health services research

Extensive Research Description

Current efforts are aimed at examining factors influencing the adoption of drug-eluting stents into routine practice, developing methods to determine procedural appropriateness, and evaluating expectations of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions.
