I help physicians, health systems, and QI organizations demonstrate and communicate improvements in care quality and patient outcomes.

I assist with strategy and design of QI efforts, data analysis, creation of data displays and summaries (posters, infographics), development of reports and peer-reviewed manuscripts, estimation of value (return on investment), and the design and evaluation of health policy.

What I do:

To put it more plainly: if you're a physician or healthcare professional who is working to improve care quality and patient outcomes, I help you navigate the space between technical methodology and real-world implications:

Example 1: You have a need to improve care for a specific patient population or setting, but are not sure quite how to go about it. I can help you identify the appropriate data and analytic methods to measure, evaluate, and demonstrate the improvement you make.

Example 2: You have statistical results of your research or QI intervention and want to disseminate the results. I can help you determine what format (e.g., paper, conference proceeding, infographic, etc.) is most appropriate for your desired audience and assist with the development of the materials to ensure you effectively communicate your message.
