Professional Interest/Expertise/Specializations:
I am an Assistant Professor of Research in the Department of Family & Preventive Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. I am also the Network Coordinator of the Oklahoma Physicians Resource/Research Network (OKPRN). I hold a BS in pharmacy and a PhD in pharmacology. I recently participated in a two-year Masters-level Public Health and Health Services Research K08 didactic curriculum. Since 2001, I have been working closely with primary care clinicians throughout Oklahoma to improve the quality and safety of primary care and to extend our knowledge through practice-based research. I participated in a number of research and quality improvement projects as PI, co-PI, or key participant, particularly in the area of preventive services delivery, chronic disease management, health information technology (HIT), and the implementation of HIT in primary care settings. Partnering with clinicians, I developed over a dozen HIT systems and applications that helped improve preventive care and chronic disease management nationally. I have also been involved closely in the creation of public-private partnerships, enhancement of pandemic preparedness, promotion of primary care practice facilitation approaches, and dissemination of practice re-engineering methods nationally. I published and presented extensively on these topics. I am a regular reviewer for several primary care peer-reviewed journals and member of various study sections at AHRQ and CIHR. My current work includes the development and testing of a novel prospective care delivery system through a patient Wellness Portal and a new-generation web-based health risk appraisal tool.
