  • HIV Quality of Care

    Principal Investigator:
    Stephen Berry, M.D., Ph.D.
    Medicine

    Dr. Stephen Berry’s research focuses on healthcare quality, safety and costs among persons livi...ng with HIV, both in the outpatient and inpatient settings. He conducts observational and interventional studies of sexually transmitted infection screening in HIV clinics, with a focus on improving performance to meet national guidelines. He leads observational studies of rates and reasons for hospitalizations and of 30-day readmission rates among HIV patients. He is conducting a randomized study of a nurse- and pharmacist-based team to reduce inpatient HIV medication errors and increase engagement in outpatient care among persons living with HIV who are hospitalized at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. view more

  • John Matthew Austin Lab

    Research in the John Matthew Austin Lab explores health care performance measures, with a goal ...of improving patient care by enabling healthcare providers to view data about their performance, track patient outcomes and comply with best care practices. Our lab is currently working to develop performance measures for the ICU part, and we are part of The Leapfrog Group, an annual survey of U.S. hospitals that compares hospital performance on national measures of safety, quality and efficiency. Our research also explores the use of scientifically sound decision-support tools for guiding improvements in healthcare delivery systems. view more

  • John Ulatowski Lab

    Lab Website

    Research in the John Ulatowski Lab explores the regulatory mechanisms of oxygen delivery to the... brain and cerebral blood flow. Our work includes developing and applying new techniques and therapies for stroke as well as non-invasive techniques for monitoring brain function, fluid management and sedation in brain injury patients. We also examine the use of novel oxygen carriers in blood. We’ve recently begun exploring new methods for perioperative and periprocedural care that would help to optimize patient safety in the future. view more

  • Maura McGuire Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Maura McGuire, M.D.
    Medicine

    The Maura McGuire Lab focuses on the improvement of quality and safety in ambulatory medicine t...hrough care management, point-of-care laboratory testing, and electronic health records and care delivery optimization. We also study the use of assessment and technology to augment learning in health care professionals and primary care physicians. view more

  • Michael A. Rosen Lab

    Research in the Michael A. Rosen Lab primarily focuses on patient safety and simulation-based h...ealth care training and technology. Recent work provided examples of how human factors experts can collaborate with health care professionals and simulationists (experts in the design and implementation of simulation) to use contemporary simulation to improve health care delivery. Another recent study examined the anesthesia practice at two tertiary care hospitals in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where anesthesia is associated with high mortality rates. We identified gaps in the application of internationally recommended anesthesia practices at both hospitals, likely caused by lack of available resources. view more
