Patient-centered outcomes rely on treatment plans where the physician and the patient work together to evaluate the evidence and the projected outcome.
Leveraging local data captured through routine patient care coupled with patient-reported outcomes (PRO) allows us to analyze patterns and results that include a focus on the importance of quality of life to drive evidence based decision-making.
Current or Recently Completed Research Projects:
