Dr. Englesbe’s research and policy interests focus on improving the quality and efficiency of surgical care, including perioperative optimization of patients for major surgery. His research is concerned with the relationship between the costs and quality of surgical care, and also specifically focuses on patient frailty, morphomics (the analysis of human body factors derived from medical imaging to understand how variations impact and predict patient risk and outcomes), and surgical outcomes and post-operative opioid utilization. He is also the associate director of the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative (MSQC), directs the Michigan Surgical & Health Optimization Program (MSHOP - a CMS-CMMI funded initiative), and co-directs the Michigan Opioid Prescribing and Engagement Network (M-OPEN).
