Portland, OR 


Kelly C. Vranas, MD, is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care at Oregon Health & Science University, a Staff Physician at the Portland VA Medical Center, and an Investigator at CIVIC. She received her M.D. from Cornell University, and completed residency training in Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. As part of her fellowship training at Stanford University, she spent a year as a research fellow at the Clinical Excellence Research Center, the first university-based research center exclusively dedicated to discovering, testing, and evaluating cost-saving innovations while simultaneously improving quality of care. Her VA HSR&D career development award is focused on improving the quality, efficiency, and value of critical care for Veterans hospitalized with acute respiratory failure through innovations in the care delivery process. Dr. Vranas hopes to generate insights into why comparable patients may be treated differently merely as a function of where they are hospitalized, with the goal of using this information to generate validated ICU admission guidelines that are sensitive to hospital-specific environments and tailored to patients with different risk profiles.
