My clinical interests in Neonatology are focused on improving neurodevelopmental outcome and quality improvement in the NICU. I lead the CHND collaboration for the Division of Newborn Medicine and am the senior lead for the group's activities in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. As the Medical Director of the NICU at St. Louis Children's Hospital I oversee all aspects of clinical care with specific emphasis on a team-based approach to clinical care. I am leading deployment of LEAN methodology and the Daily Management System in the NICU in streamlining physician workflow and reducing/eliminating inefficiencies in health care delivery with an enhanced focus on patient care quality and safety.
