My main research focus is implementation and evaluation of communication technologies to improve care for chronically ill older adults. My funded research has focused on use of telemedicine to deliver specialist care for long term care residents, and home telehealth to provide care management for patients with heart failure, diabetes, and hypertension, particularly in rural areas. Current projects include an implementation evaluation of home based cardiac rehabilitation, including an evaluation of use of video-to-home.
