Interested in learning how researchers can address implementation in their effectiveness studies?
You are invited to a virtual Dissemination and Implementation Science Special Interest Group Meeting on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, 1:00PM-2:00PM EST.
The guest speaker for the meeting will be Rachel Gold, PhD, MPH. An open discussion will follow her presentation.
Dr. Gold is an epidemiologist and health services researcher. Her work focuses on using health information technology to improve care quality in public clinics and reduce health disparities, and on the implementation methods needed to support adoption of such technologies. She has partnered with the OCHIN practice-based research network since 2005; she now has a joint appointment at the Center for Health Research, where she is a Senior Investigator, and OCHIN, where she is the lead research scientist. Her work includes studying how to implement a multi-faceted quality improvement initiative that targeted cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes care in the Kaiser Permanente setting, in the context of community health centers serving socioeconomically vulnerable patient populations.
Dr. Gold is also studying the adoption and impact of an innovative point-of-care shared decision-making tool on CVD outcomes in community clinics. She also pilot-tested electronic health record-based tools for collecting and acting on patient-reported social risks (adverse social determinants of health), and is now studying how to help community clinics implement systematic social risk screening, and how to use patient-reported social risk data in clinical decision-making. Past efforts include analyzing the impact of state insurance policy changes on pediatric care in safety net clinics, and the relationship between continuous insurance coverage and receipt of diabetes care in community clinic settings.
Dr. Gold earned her MPH from Temple University and her PhD in epidemiology from the University of Washington.
