overview

My areas of research include organizational capacity for change and transformation, implementation of new innovative models of care in primary and acute care settings, hospital readmission reduction strategies, outcomes research, and healthcare strategic planning and management. My most recent research projects focus on examining elements of integrated primary provider networks as potential sources of competitive advantage using resource based theory (RBT).
