Research Profile

"More than 100 million Americans have chronic health conditions, but many of them do not receive the care they need to adequately control them. Getting the right intervention to the right patient at the right time remains a gap in healthcare, and Dr. Koopman addresses this gap in her research.

Dr. Koopman is committed to promoting EHR design that makes it easy for patients and physicians to make good decisions to improve health. She seeks to leverage improved data visualization, electronic support for decision making and patient-physician information sharing to enable people with chronic conditions and their physicians to make well-informed shared decisions that lead to better health outcomes.

Having patients contribute their own data to the EHR to aid in decision making is an emerging trend in health care. Dr. Koopman has led an effort to bring home blood pressure data, including better data visualization to the clinical EHR to help patients and physicians make better shared decisions about hypertension control."
