Srikant Iyer, MD, MPH, completed his residency in categorical pediatrics and fellowship in pediatric emergency medicine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2000 and 2005, respectively. He also completed his Masters degree in 2005 from the Harvard School of Public Health.

Dr. Iyer’s initial research efforts were directed toward improving efficiency of care, specifically via the use of point-of-care testing. These efforts were funded by an industry-sponsored grant from Quidel, Inc., as well as a Cincinnati Children's T32 Award from 2004-2006.

His interests broadened to include both improvements in timeliness and efficiency, specifically toward improving acute pain management in acute care settings. These efforts were funded by a Place Outcomes Award and an award from the Mayday Fund from 2008-2010.

Dr. Iyer’s current work has broadened further to involve improvements in timeliness of care for patients seeking care in open access systems. His most recent effort has been directed toward designing an emergency department fast track care stream to improve the timeliness of care delivery in this system. To aid him in these efforts, he has received formal training in QI methods, LEAN, statistical process control, queuing theory, and improvement science from Cincinnati Children's and the Institute for Health Care Improvement (IHI).

Dr. Iyer has also served as the improvement advisor for the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative since 2006.

In December 2012, Dr. Iyer was offered a one year appointment in the CMS Innovation Advisors Program (IAP). His appointment is administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) on behalf of the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center.
