John Heintzman, MD, MPH

My research focus is the use of electronic health records (EHRs) to study the access, utilization, and quality of care that vulnerable populations receive. Specifically, I focus on the care provided to uninsured, Latino, and immigrant populations in Oregon Community Health Centers. My published work to date has also had a focused on validating data elements in the EHR in order to best utilize these datasets in the study of health disparities.
