Informatics Research Seminar: CANCELLED – The Beacon Project: Will HIT Improve Healthcare Quality and Reduce Cost?

December 8 @ 4:00 – 5:00 pm



Carlton Moore, MD, MS

Dr. Moore’s background in both medical informatics and health services research provides him with the knowledge to help train students about the impact that health information technology, specifically, “meaningful use” electronic health records (EHRs) has on quality of care and patients safety. He completed an NIH funded applied medical informatics fellowship (1F38LM000078) after completing his residency in internal medicine and is currently a research fellow at the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. His primary research focus is evaluating the impact that EHR adoption by primary care practices has on health outcomes and he is the lead co-investigator for health outcomes evaluation for a Beacon Community Cooperative Program grant (HHS-2010-ONC-BC-004) that is evaluating the impact of EHR adoption on health outcomes in primary care practices in central North Carolina.
