She has helped HHS leverage data assets to develop quality measures, reports, and free and open-source software platforms, providing hospital- and population-based health analytics on patient safety and primary care. The data and tools she helped create are being used by state agencies, health plans, provider systems and software vendors to improve the health care industry.
