Dr. Chopra is a hospitalist-investigator whose research efforts are centered on improving the safety of hospitalized patients by preventing hospital-acquired complications (infectious and noninfectious). Using peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) as a model for this research, his work has focused on quantifying current use of PICCs in hospitalized patients, estimating the risk of complications (in particular venous thromboembolism and catheter-related thrombosis), and defining innovative ways to improve decision-making for these devices. He has also conducted research on vascular access device safety, and infectious and non-infectious complications with collaborators in India and Australia. Dr. Chopra is also a member of the IHPI Institute Leadership Team (ILT).
