Dr. Amy K. Rosen is a CHOIR Investigator and the Director of a new Patient Safety Center of Inquiry at the VA entitled “Measurement to Advance Patient Safety” (MAPS) which has been funded for three years by the National Center for Patient Safety. She is also a Professor of Surgery at Boston University School of Medicine. Her primary interests are: quality of care assessment and measurement, risk adjustment, and patient safety. Dr. Rosen examined the prevalence and incidence of Patient Safety Indicators, developed by AHRQ, in the VA, and evaluated their construct and criterion validity. She worked closely with AHRQ to improve the indicators. She conducted health services research projects involving the development and use of risk-adjustment models used to compare quality of care delivery in different settings: hospital, long-term care, and ambulatory care. Dr. Rosen is PI of two current VA HSR&D IIR proposals that examine readmissions in the VA and whether or not they reflect quality of care.
