My Biography & Research


Following his cardiology fellowship, Dr. Anderson helped establish the Syncope Clinic in the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and he continues to direct the work in this clinic.

Dr. Anderson helped develop the Safety, Quality, Value program within the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. The Heart Institute’s Safety, Quality, and Value team provides a platform of core data management, analytic, quality improvement, and project management expertise focused specifically on the Heart Institute’s strategic priority areas related to safety, quality, and value. This team serves a supporting role to further the Heart Institute’s ability to achieve its mission of being the leader in clinical outcomes, experience, and value for patients and families who receive diagnostic and interventional services for congenital and acquired heart disease.
