Research Overview

First and foremost the broad area supporting the Nationwide Health Information Network. My Master’s Essay “Cross Hospitalization within the Connecticut Blue Cross Network” presented original research on the hospital admission patterns … .assessing the incidence of cross-hospitalization. The analysis of the readmission population served as a data base to evaluate the need for developing mechanisms to facilitate the transfer of medical information to and from health care providers collectively involved in the care of a common patient pool.

The opportunities for enhanced patient education thru a nationwide health information network will be explored in further research studies.
