Our research seeks to create, implement, test, and
disseminate strategies for improving the quality of and
access to specialty healthcare, especially in hepatology and gastroenterology. Our
investigations focus in particular on (1) integrating health information technology with specialty
care delivery, (2) facilitating communication between primary care and specialty care
providers, and (3) enhancing the efficiency of specialty service provision. Much of our work
employs San Francisco’s safety net healthcare system, which is distinguished by universal
access to primary and specialty care and a horizontally and vertically integrated healthcare
