Incorporating the Quadruple Aim of Sikka et al (2015), WIHSE research focuses on four themes including:

  • Monitoring and anticipating safe care transitions for vulnerable populations (e.g., children and elderly patients)
  • Smart automation and technologies for coordinating and communicating diagnosis and treatment (e.g., applied to cancer and diabetes)
  • Smart and connected patient-centered care:  Implications for clinical decision support, telehealth and sensing technologies
  • Patient safety: Modeling, forecasting and responding to healthcare-associated complications (e.g., infections and medication safety)
