DBP Problems in Primary Care

Official Research Title: Management of Developmental and Behavioral Conditions by Primary Care Providers

Principal Investigator: Yair Bannett, MD

Study Description: Current projects include observational studies in the community-based primary care setting, using multi-level analysis of electronic health record (EHR) data to assess management of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and early identification of autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. Future studies will utilize recent advances in natural language processing technology to better assess quality of care provided by primary care provicers (PCPs), with the ultimate goal of implementing clinician- and systems-level interventions aimed at improving health care delivery for children with developmental and behavioral conditions.
