As research director, Dr. Seuli Brill leads her own research program and and guides other providers in the division of general internal medicine with their research. Dr. Brill’s research is based on provider/ patient communication. Simply, how doctors talk to patients about medical problems and how they want to be cared for, both in minor ailments and terminal illness. This way, patients have ownership of their disease. Dr. Brill is passionate about her research and how the language we use impacts real world clinical problems.

Dr. Brill is currently the director of The Center for Health Outcomes in Medicine Scholarship and Service (HOMES), which centralizes a rich network of collaborators needed to conduct health outcomes research in internal medicine. If you’re interested in collaborating with HOMES or would like to discuss how HOMES can partner with you on your research, please submit this electronic form.

Dr. Brill is also the director in the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Network; here she supports research collaborations across the colleges and departments within the Ohio State University. Most recently, she was awarded a  COVID-19 Special Grants Competition Award for “Talking in the Clinic: Barriers and Facilitators of Chronic Disease Adherence among Patients at High Risk for Covid-19 Complications.” The grant will fund a year of Dr. Brill's work with faculty in Ohio State's English Department to do medical communication research that is centered on identifying barriers to accessing care among patients who are at risk for COVID-19 complications.

Ongoing Projects Include:

Identification of Linguistic Strategies in Student/ Portfolio Coach Interactions
Analysis of Patient vs. Provider  Illness Accounts in Complex-Chronic Disease
Using the Patient Health Record to Facilitate  Primary Care Advance Care Planning Delivery and Documentation
Patient Centered Medical Home Investigation
