I am a physician researcher studying the dynamics of healthcare systems and health services delivery. My general interest is in developing methods to improve health system quality and efficiency. My current research involves simulation modeling of healthcare systems, including the impacts of alternative policy options. A specific content focus of my work is the use of information technology and the internet to improve healthcare delivery. My research has focused technology diffusion and synthesizing clinical impacts of information technology. I am also working on issues related to digital healthcare identity.

A developing area of interest of mine is the aggregation and flow of information across large "human in the loop" networks. What are the schema that exist in such groups to share information? The information held by any single actor in these networks is limited. Across the group, information may follow a power law distribution with skewed long tail distribution. How can information be aggregated across such networks and then utilized by individual actors?
