Research Interests

Dr. Moore’s research interests focus on the intersection between quality improvement and clinical informatics. Broadly, his research interest is evaluating the impact that health information technology has on quality of care and patient safety. Specifically, he is interested in patient safety and quality of care during hospital discharge, and the use of health information technology to improve timely follow-up of abnormal test results. His current research focuses on using text mining and natural language processing tools to identify abnormal results in free-text clinical notes and investigating the effects of electronic health record usability on patient safety.
