Faculty earn first local health outcomes fellowships

PULLMAN, Wash. – Three Washington State University faculty members whose research focuses on improving health outcomes are the first recipients of Community Health Impact Fellowship Awards from the Center for Learning & Innovation at Pullman Regional Hospital.

The fellowships encourage community collaboration, collegiality and productivity to improve healthcare delivery, lower costs and improve patient outcomes. Recipients work with hospital departments to test their research through real-time experiences in a clinical setting using hospital data.

Awardees and their research are:

* Bidisha Mandal, School of Economic Sciences, who will analyze the hospital’s readmission rates and how these affect resources as she seeks to understand the need for and scope of transitional care in Pullman and the region.

* Hassan Ghasemzadeh, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, who will focus on making nutrition monitoring easier for patients through the use of mobile speech and text.

* Lei Li, School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, who researches smartphone based mobile-point-of-care to diagnose disease with high accuracy and sensitivity.
