Dr. Barnes’ health services research interests focus on safe and effective delivery of anticoagulation care, particularly for patients with atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism. He is also interested in quality of care, quality improvement, as well as the use of implementation science and Lean thinking to improve care or develop new care delivery models. Much of his current work focuses on developing safer models of care for patients taking chronic blood thinners who are undergoing surgical procedures. He also has an interest in patient-physician shared decision making. Dr. Barnes is the co-director of the Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative (MAQI2), a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan sponsored collaborative QI consortium.
