Dr. Doebbeling is a nationally recognized health care epidemiologist, health services researcher, and mentor. His research focuses on medical informatics, in the areas of social informatics, human computer interaction, and development and implementation of information and decision support tools to improve work and information flow. His methodologic work has defined new approaches to benchmark performance and identify determinants of program effectiveness. His research is interdisciplinary and cross-cutting in the areas of the prevention and management of antimicrobial resistance and patient safety, mental health, cancer and other chronic conditions. He has carried out ethnographic and survey research and secondary data analysis on clinical decision support and its integration into workflow with increasing focus on the assessment of multilevel factors associated with work, patient and information flow.
Dr. Doebbeling currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Primary Care & Community Health. He also serves as associate director for the AHRQ-funded Indiana General Health Services Research Fellowship Training Program and has developed successful clinical research training programs both in the VA HSR&D Center of Excellence on Implementing Evidence-Based Practice (CIEBP) and at University of Iowa (NIH K30 and NIH K12 awards).
I. AHRQ/CDC 09/29/2008 - 05/30/2012
"Spreading Techniques to Radically Reduce MRSA" (PI)
The objectives are to (1) facilitate the implementation and inter- and intra-hospital spread of evidence-based practices and strategies to reduce MRSA; (2) utilize information technology to share information on MRSA case status and feedback on progress; (3) investigator risk factors for healthcare-associated community acquired MRSA; and (4) work with hospitals in and outside Indianapolis, AHRQ and CDC in sharing lessons learned about implementing and sustaining culture change (lean, positive deviance) interventions and tools.
II. CDC Indefinite Duration, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Proposal 01/01/2012 - 12/13/2017
"Safety and Healthcare Epidemiology Prevention Research Development (ShEPheRD) Program: Domain 1 HAI Prevention Implementation"
The Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP) within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide multiple complementary initiatives through the SHEPheRD Program. This Program is designed to maximize the CDC's ability to perform translational HAI prevention research and this IDIQ contract is one component of this multifaceted research program focused on the performance of studies relevant to the prevention of HAIs using a task order mechanism.
III. AHRQ T-32 07/01/2008 - 06/30/2013
"Institutional Training Grant in Health Services Research" (PI: Steven Downs)
Develop and implement the Indiana Health Services Research Training Program - to prepare high quality clinical investigators to conduct research that will improve the health of the public by optimizing access, quality and cost effectiveness of health services.
IV. VA HSR&D 12/01/2009 - 11/30/2012
“Simulation Based Planning Model for Mental Health Care Services” (PI)
This grant’s aims are to: 1) formulate and implement a set of procedures for a collaborative planning approach using simulation models as a decision support tool; 2) construct and validate simulation models, and 3) evaluate the utility of the collaborative planning approach.
V. VA HSR&D 03/01/2009 - 02/28/2013
“Consortium for Healthcare Informatics Research: Applied Data Mining” (PI)
The overall goal of this project is to create and validate informatics tools which utilize data mining techniques to identify individuals with MRSA, in order to support the implementation of evidence-based practices for preventing and reducing MRSA infections in the hospital setting.
