Dr. Bravata conducts health services research in cerebrovascular disease. The fundamental goal of her research is to improve the quality of care for stroke patients and others with cerebrovascular disease.

She is interested in three topics within this larger domain: measurement of quality of care received by patients with stroke and transient ischemic attack, effectiveness and implementation of interventions for patients with acute ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack, and the identification and treatment of medical co-morbidities in patients with cerebrovascular disease.

“The VA’s expertise and experience with patient-specific electronic medical data may help identify strategies to ensure that patients receive the best care and, importantly, are not lost to follow-up.”
