Patrick Brady, MD, MSc, has clinical training in pediatrics and hospital medicine as well as advanced training in epidemiology and biostatistics and in the science of improvement through two 6-month courses at Cincinnati Children’s. He has completed coursework at the graduate level in human factors and through the Systems Engineering in Patient Safety (SEIPS) workshop led by NIH-funded researchers at the University of Wisconsin.

Their pilot work on a system to proactively identify, mitigate and escalate risk has resulted in measured decreases in patient harm and deterioration. The Academy for Healthcare Improvement recently recognized this work with top prize at its international meeting. Dr. Brady's current focus builds logically on this work, and his research team includes clinical and methodological experts with impressive research portfolios both inside and outside of healthcare.

In summary, Dr. Brady has the training, experience and collaborators needed to study and improve the care of patients at risk for deterioration, to define highly reliable interventions that deliver the right therapeutics early, and to improve the safety of patients in our increasingly complex healthcare system.
