My research goal is to improve healthcare safety and effectiveness through the adoption of innovations in real world organizations. The approach taken to accomplish this is focused on real world implementation strategies informed by organizational theories and frameworks. To be successful in this approach, collaboration with community partners is critical.
I have worked with agencies such as the Alabama Department of Senior Services and the Alabama Department of Public Health’s Immunization Patient Registry with Internet Technology (ImmPRINT) Division. I have also developed relationships with a number of community pharmacies to help them enhance their innovation implementation. I will continue to use this approach in my future career, collaborating with community partners and public agencies, to facilitate the safe and effective delivery of care to patients.
