Dr. Gail Grever’s research applies continuous quality improvement to patient care. Together with a team of fellow doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, she examines how to improve patient care workflow and care coordination for patients impacted by complex chronic diseases. Dr. Grever and her team are currently using the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model to develop a standard of care for discharging patients with such diseases as diabetes or hypertension. They are examining how implementing such standards impacts disease reduction, emergency department visits and hospital readmission rates.
Dr. Grever is work to further develop oversight of controlled substances prescriptions within the division. She has helped develop a treatment agreement that monitors the prescription of controlled substances and will be working with pharmacy team to develop further oversight of scripts being sent. These projects are designed to standardize the way doctors prescribe potentially addictive opiates and other medications, ultimately seeking to help combat the problem of prescription drug overdose in Ohio.
