Alexander C Allori, MD

Assistant Professor of Surgery
Assistant Professor in Population Health Sciences

My research interests cover the gamut of health-services research and include traditional clinical outcomes research, patient-reported outcomes, comparative effectiveness review, economic analysis, health-technology assessment, and management and policy studies. I have a particular interest in informatics, data analytics and visualization, and dissemination and implementation.

My goal is to develop “metrics that matter” — standardized methods to assess outcomes that are meaningful to patients. I focus especially on improving integration of these data into the clinical workflow of multidisciplinary teams, where communication and coordination of care are critical for success.
