Sarah J. Crane, M.D., studies system-based support of specific populations in primary care practices. Areas of emphasis include the development and utilization of administrative risk stratification scores for frail, older adults with the goal of directing resources to support those patients most at risk of adverse consequences, such as hospital admissions or readmissions. Additionally, Dr. Crane has studied multiple new models of care such as electronic online patient communication and how data can be used to direct resources into new models of virtual care.
With the enormous growth anticipated in the number of older adults and frail patients, systems will need to understand the most efficient and effective ways of supporting these patients and their families across the spectrum of care. Risk scores integrated into institutional process flows allow teams to proactively identify these individuals and offer support.
