Mina Ostovari, PhD, shares her ACCEL-related research at recent conferences.
Dr. Ostovari is a Lead Research Investigator at ChristianaCare Health Services Inc. Her research is mostly focused on improving chronic condition care. In particular, she is interested in studying the impact of provider collaboration and communication on outcomes of patients with diabetes.
Dr. Ostovari received a Delaware Clinical and Translational Research ACCEL Program Pilot Grant to develop a methodology to model the collaborative relationships among healthcare providers and understand how those relate to outcomes of patients with diabetes.
Recently, she conducted an “ignite-style” presentation, “Studying Healthcare Provider Collaboration: Approaches, Challenges, and Opportunities for the Future” at the AMIA Clinical Informatics Conference in Houston, Texas. The conference is where clinician informaticists of all disciplines –physicians, nurses, physician assistants, technicians, HIT developers, data analysts, C-suite executives, and more – share their innovations in bringing the technology advances out of the lab and into the front lines of care delivery.
In addition, she recently presented a research poster of her work, “Examining Healthcare Provider Collaboration in Diabetes Care: A Network of Analysis Approach,” at the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting in Washington, D.C. The research meeting consisted of a large and diverse group of stakeholders at the intersection of health, health care, and policy to share important findings and showcase the latest research on how the health system works, what it costs, and how to improve it.
