|Our scientists are working to ensure that health care is delivered in a safe, effective, efficient, and patient-centered manner. Our research seeks to prevent harm that can happen when appropriate care is not provided or when unnecessary procedures or treatments are prescribed. This research leads to models that provide safe and less costly care, including:
- Transformation of the inpatient care delivery model to ensure that each patient receives individualized strategies that prevent complications during hospital care.
- An assessment of a statewide hospital patient safety initiative that aims to decrease inappropriate catheter use and reduce urinary-tract infection rates.
