My career focus in the past 15 years has been in the integration of methodology and technology to improve the quality of care and patient safety. I have initiated a new discipline called “Clinical Infometrics” that is a synthesis of measurement sciences, statistical modeling, evidenced-based medicine, and information technology to guide clinical decision making in real time and to improve symptom and disease management over time. My research is in palliative and end-of-life research and education, patient-reported outcomes measurement, health-related quality of life measurement, item response theory, computerized adaptive testing, health literacy, patient safety, and health information technology.
