Daniel Lee’s research interest lies at the intersection of quality improvement and informatics, using innovative tools to decrease the gap between clinical practice and evidence-based guidelines. His previous work focused on identifying gaps in the quality of cancer care for minorities, evaluating how alternative payment models such as Accountable Care Organizations can influence or exacerbate existing racial disparities, and understanding how health IT tools such as patient portals and smartphone apps can promote patient engagement and empowerment. Dr. Lee is currently working on leveraging population health data to reduce racial disparities in the quality of cancer care through the use of consumer health tools and clinical decision support.
