Summary

  • My academic interests focus on measurement and improvement of quality of care among patients with arrhythmias and arrhythmia devices. I am a recipient of a Research Career Development Award from the VA Office of Health Services Research and Development (VA HSR&D) evaluating real-world outcomes among veterans with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). The product of this effort has been the establishment of the Outcomes among Veterans with Implantable Defibrillators (OVID) Registry. I also serve in national leadership roles in quality of arrhythmia care with the American College of Cardiology, the National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) and the Heart Rhythm Society. As a member of the VA’s Denver-based CART program (the VA National Program by which all cardiology procedures are documented in the VA system), I am leading the development of CART-EP, a new comprehensive VA-wide implantable arrhythmia device health information technology platform spanning pre-implantation evaluation, documentation of the implantation procedure, in-clinic follow-up, and remote monitoring follow-up for veterans with pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. While simultaneously making care documentation more efficient, this new CART-EP module will integrate real-time data collection directly into the process of clinical care. I also co-chair the team leading the implementation of Real-Time Locator System (RTLS) technology in VA cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology laboratories for supply chain management.
