Research Summary/Interests

My research focuses on the impact of health information technologies on patient outcomes, provider perceptions and attitudes and organizational outcomes. It encompasses the technologies of health information exchange, telehealth and electronic prescribing. I am also heavily involved in the design of information systems to support clinical research in primary care settings.
