Talk Title: “Improving Trauma Systems of Care”
Biography: Anne M. Stey, M.D., MSc received her medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine of New York University. After witnessing inefficiencies and disparities in care in New York City, she studied International Health Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science where she developed an interest in economic analysis. She returned to New York to complete general surgery residency at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. She was then selected as one of the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars at the University of California Los Angeles where she developed interests in quality measurement, and quality improvement. She worked on identifying sources of variation in cost of surgical care and the relationship between cost and quality of care. Clinically she focused on surgical critical care and trauma surgery and completed clinical fellowship at the University of California San Francisco. Her ongoing research interests are focused on issues of quality and value measurement with an underlying goal of helping the US health care system become more efficient and equitable for all Americans. Dr. Stey holds a K-award from NHLBI on the timeliness of the management of trauma related hemorrhage and trauma related coagulopathy, and is the director of the coordinating center for the Illinois Surgical Quality Improvement Collaborative (ISQIC).
