I am a Professor and Chief of the Dow Division of Health Services Research, in the Department of Urology at the University of Michigan. After graduating from Washington University School of Medicine, I completed my general surgery internship and urology residency training at the University of Michigan Medical Center. I then undertook fellowship training in urological oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. My clinical practice focuses on the diagnosis and management of patients with prostate and kidney cancer. I also serve as Director of the Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC). Funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, MUSIC is a consortium of nearly 40 urology practices aiming to improve the quality and cost-efficiency of prostate cancer care in the state of Michigan. More recently, I also became Director of the Michigan Value Collaborative, BCBSM-funded consortium that aims to help Michigan hospitals achieve their best possible patient outcomes at the lowest reasonable cost. I have a broad background in health services research, including substantial experience using claims data and formal training in the advanced statistical methods used in observational data analyses. With funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the National Cancer Institute, my longitudinal research agenda focuses on comparative effectiveness research, physician-led collaborative quality improvement, and on understanding the relationship between physician organizations, integrated delivery systems, and the quality and cost of specialty care.
