- Research Summary
My research interests include physical activity promotion and studying other health behaviors, chronic disease prevention, and understanding how physical space and design (the "built environment") affect and influence individual and population health. My research has involved large database studies, survey studies, as well as clinical studies. My work is multidisciplinary and seeks to foster collaboration among health researchers, design professionals, and technology specialists.
A program encouraging overweight or obese adolescents to increase their physical activity through use of their everyday environment, rather than organized classes or sports programs, produced significant increases in daily physical activity that were sustained for at least three to four months.
During the past four years, Partners has developed a number of programs &ndash; known as Population Health Management (PHM) &ndash; to improve the health of patients, lower costs of care and help to ensure more efficient care.
Childhood obesity continues to be a major public health problem, and national trends indicate insufficient and declining levels of physical activity in children and adolscents. The design of buildings and neighborhoods, known collectively as the built environment, has the potential to influence physical activity.
The Mass General Integrated Care Management Program has demonstrated substantial success in improving care for thousands of its sickest patients &ndash; reducing hospitalization, emergency room visits and mortality rates, among other achievements &ndash; while reducing Medicare costs by as much as 7 percent.
