I am thinking of exploring all possible ways to acquire new knowledge to keep the quality of our research at UM-KECC at the highest level. Retaining UM-KECC's traditionally strong position in end-stage renal disease (ESRD), I also have been thinking about significantly expanding our research to include other chronic diseases.
Our research at UM-KECC has addressed the efficiency of care delivery at the individual and population levels in order to support value-based purchasing initiatives. In addition, our work has provided the evidence-based results for health care policymakers, and has made scientific advances in health outcomes research, clinical medicine, public health and health care delivery.
It is a great honor to lead UM-KECC, which features a combined force of world-class investigators from the School of Public Health and the Medical School. Our work has an impact on improving quality and efficiency of care delivered to both government program (e.g. Medicare and Medicaid) beneficiaries and the general U.S. population.
