How do the conversations between doctors and patients affect patient outcomes and future healthcare use?

Research across sociology, psychology, and medicine have found that certain differences in the way doctors speak with patients can improve patient communication about presenting problems, increase patient satisfaction, and even enhance physiological responses to treatment. Collecting transcripts of conversations between patients and their doctors would provide a wealth of qualitative information that could be analyzed ...more »

What are the personal narratives of those receiving genetic test results (when available)?

Longitudinal narrative inquiry capturing diverse voices of study participants receiving genetic test results has the potential to fill gaps in the understanding of individual/family expectations; reactions; actions; and outcomes. Objectives: assess attitudes, literacy, perspectives about receiving genetic test results, implications of results for self/others, family communication pathways, and valued resources. Qualitative ...more »

How can we improve outcomes for men diagnosed with prostate cancer?

Although prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the U.S., many men have indolent tumors that are unlikely to cause death in a man’s lifetime. Determining which prostate tumors are likely to lead to death is of critical clinical importance to prevent unnecessary treatment and unwanted side-effects. Understanding factors related to disease etiology and progression and developing risk models is essential ...more »

Improving precision management of acute infections and sepsis as a major burden to healthcare systems

Key areas of unmet medical need: - Improve identification of patients at high risk for sepsis - Improve characterization of patients with sepsis (endotyping) - Predict outcomes of acute infections and/or sepsis at the time of presentation - Develop companion diagnostics (biomarkers?) that identify patients responding to specific sepsis therapies - Improve early diagnosis of pathogens causing sepsis and their resistance ...more »

What is the relative impact of various physical environmental factors like natural daylight, view, and noise on patient oucomes?

Using data on the physical features of patients' rooms, bathrooms, nurses' stations, etc., this study would use multivariate linear regression, artificial neural networks, deep leaning, or other AI methods to draw correlations between each of these physical features and patient outcomes like length of stay, readmission rates, accidents, hospital-acquired infections, mortality, and staff occupational injuries, and build ...more »

Can telemedicine provide quality care for chronic conditions?

There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to the quality of care via Telemedicine. I would like to focus on patient outcomes as it relates to providing safe, reliable and consistent results. The study could be implemented so that both subjective data and objective data are measured. Accessing EHR records and implementing surveys of those patients who suffer from chronic conditions are two methods for collecting pertinent ...more »
