Research Summary

Our work focuses on the development, evaluation, and implementation of strategies for delivering team-based specialty care in rural settings, where health care resources are often limited. We are particularly interested in delivery systems that combine telehealth, integrated electronic health records, population registries, and innovative models for generalist-specialist collaboration. Current projects center on care for persons with HIV/AIDS. More recent work explores geographic and hospital-level variation in outcomes among patients with Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB), and roles for tele-consultation in SAB care.

Dr. Ohl is also an investigator with the Center for Comprehensive Access and Delivery Research and Evaluation (CADRE) and the Veteran’s Rural Health Resource Center at the Iowa City VA.
