Research Interests
Combined analysis of structure and function in glaucoma: To better model the clinical practice of subjectively combining optic nerve structure and function, we have created a method to combine quantitative measures of structure (imaging) and function (visual field) and are in the process of analyzing this approach using cross-sectional and prospective data.

Clinical Informatics
As Director of Information Technology at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Dr. Boland is involved in a number of projects that directly impact patient care. To help assess the impact of IT on care, we are currently evaluating the impact of a new electronic health record on both patients and physicians. We are also assessing the ability of telecommunication-based reminders (voice and text messages) to improve adherence with glaucoma medications.

Distributed Research Network
Dr. Boland is also carrying out a pilot project to demonstrate the ability of a distributed network of physicians to carry out clinical research. We anticipate that this will lead to longer-term funding to maintain and expand the network.
