David A. Dorr, MD, MS, earned his BA in Economics (with minors in Mathematics and Psychology) and his MD from Washington University in St. Louis. He then completed Internal Medicine residency at Oregon Health & Science University, and earned a Master's in Medical Informatics and Health Services Administration from the University of Utah.
Broadly, David’s interests lie in complex care management, especially for older adults and other at-risk populations, coordination of care, collaborative care, chronic disease management, quality, and the requirements of clinical information systems to support these areas. From these interests, he has broadened into clinical information needs, Electronic Health Record (EHR) deployment and Health Information Exchange as a way to expand systems-based approaches to all of health care. Finally, David performs evaluations of care management and informatics initiatives using a variety of methodologies.
His current projects include dissemination, further innovation, and evaluation of the Care Management Plus project (funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation). He developed the Integrated Care Coordination Information System (ICCIS), a population management system connected to multiple EHRs and other data sources that does risk stratification, complex care management, quality measurement, and reporting. He works on primary care redesign modeling, using pragmatic/effectiveness trial designs to study how changes in incentives, technology infrastructure, and practice facilitation can help improve health, reduce cost, and improve patient satisfaction with care; his current study is the TOPMED trial (funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation) and he provides technical assistance for the Comprehensive Primary Care initiative and informatics initiatives.
