Dr. Brooke’s research group focuses on patient-centered models to improve care coordination for medically complex patients during transitions of surgical care across all different types of surgical specialties. This includes investigating ways to identify individualized patient risk prior to surgery (i.e. frailty assessment tools), delivering patient-centered pain management programs to reduce opioid use, and evaluate patient-reported outcomes following surgery. He also leads several projects focused on the design of health information technology (HIT) tools to improve care coordination and decision support for surgical providers. Goals include applying implementation science models to incorporate and evaluate HIT tools in surgical practice.
