9/30/2014: Dr. Heena Santry has been awarded an R01 (Independent Investigator Research Grant) from the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality for her project entitled "A New Specialty Responding To National Needs: Does Acute Care Surgery Deliver?" (Grant #1 R01 HS022694-01A1). The project focuses on an ongoing crisis in access to care for time-sensitive surgical diseases such as perforated bowel or necrotizing soft tissue infections that is expected to worsen based on current surgical workforce trends and the aging US population. The research will examine the ongoing diffusion of a new specialty called acute care surgery as a strategy to meet our nation’s emergency general surgery needs and will measure which specific structures and processes optimize outcomes for patients with general surgery emergencies. The results of this project will help develop organized systems for the care of emergency general surgery patients so that all Americans suffering general surgery emergencies will have timely access to high quality surgical care regardless of when and where they are stricken.
