Informatics and Redesign Strategies for Improving Healthcare
  • Regional Infection Prevention Redesign & Change Collaboratives
  • Perioperative Systems Reengineering
  • Primary Care Business Process Management, Access and Efficiency

Dr. Doebbeling is a nationally-recognized researcher, mentor and consultant in informatics, healthcare systems engineering and implementation science. His research focuses on understanding multilevel factors important in integrating clinical decision support, work and information flow, and modeling these transitions to develop information tools to support teamwork and informed decision-making. His work integrates organizational interventions, systems delivery research, applied informatics research, and program development. He has led a variety of performance improvement and redesign collaboratives in community settings over the past 12 years, collaborated with healthcare leaders and staff, and other researchers, and produced important impacts on quality of care and multiple peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Doebbeling serves on the editorial board of four journals, served on multiple grant review panels and received multiple teaching and research awards.

Dr. Doebbeling has worked in multiple healthcare settings (primary care, surgery, ICUs, others) to assess ways to improve workflow and efficiency in healthcare settings, integrating clinical decision support, work and information flow, modeling care transitions, to develop tools to support teamwork, informed decision-making, and improved health outcomes and efficiency. This research has been funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, NIH and CDC.

Dr. Doebbeling's work in applying his research on how to improve access, efficiency and outcomes in healthcare settings demonstrates how IUPUI's faculty members are TRANSLATING their RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE.
