My professional focus is practice innovation and providing high-quality, low-cost preventative healthcare.  A major way I work to innovate and improve care is through quality improvement (QI). I lead a variety of primary care QI initiatives such improving hypertension, cancer screening, depression screening, and pediatric dental care. I also use my unique knowledge as a Med-Peds physician caring for families of all ages in treating mother-child pairs. I was a co-investigator in an ODH and Ohio Department of Medicaid grant from 2018-2020 creating a dyad care model to provide convenient and simultaneous care for mothers and infants. This interdisciplinary care model provides both moms and babies improved quality of care with higher postpartum follow-up rates, depression screening, and diabetes screening.

Moving forward, I am continuing to expand QI work with goals of sharing it more broadly. I am currently working on a process to improve patient engagement with care coordination outreach. I am also collaborating more with family medicine to engage patients outside of Internal Medicine and Med-Peds. I am also continuing my effort in the mother-infant dyad care arena working to expand care to other clinical sites and other high risk conditions such as prematurity.
