Health Services Intervention Trials

Faculty

Esa Davis

Dr. Davis’ research focuses on reducing risk factors such as hypertension, obesity, smoking and patient attitudes associated with cardiovascular disease.

Charles Jonassaint

Dr. Jonassaint is also the co-inventor of two mobile apps for assessing patient-reported outcomes, innovations that are specifically designed to meet the needs of underserved populations. Testing of a SCD specific self-management app has led to two publications and is now being used in four funded studies at three institutions. 

Kathleen McTigue

Dr. McTigue led the development, implementation and evaluation of the first online adaptation of the Diabetes Prevention Program’s lifestyle intervention. This work uses technology to bring evidence-based self-management support to primary care patients. 

Bruce Rollman

Dr. Rollman pioneered the use of Epic electronic medical record system alerts to identify patients for enrollment into clinical trials at the time of the physician encounter. He has been principal investigator on six NIH-funded R01 effectiveness trials for treating depression and anxiety that all achieved at least 100% of their target recruitment goals, including the Online Treatment for Mood and Anxiety Disorders Trial, which evaluated the impact of providing a computerized cognitive behavioral therapy program and Internet support group through a collaborative care program (N=704); and the Hopeful Heart Trial, which tested the effectiveness of a “blended" collaborative care model for treating both systolic heart failure and depression (N=756).

Ann-Marie Rosland

Director, Caring for Complex Chronic Conditions Research Center

Dr. Rosland is currently developing a new 'smart' tool that uses real-time health system data & machine learning to support effective primary care management for complex patients. She is also a Co-Principal Investigator for the VA PROVE QUERI, which promotes the use of interventions that make healthcare decision-making more personalized to patients' needs and values.
