Optimizing Care to Prevent Diabetes and Promote Cardiovascular Health Among Younger Adults with Severe Mental Illness

This K23 career development project seeks to leverage electronic health record data from KPNC and 2 health system collaborators within the Mental Health Research Network to investigate population health management strategies to prevent diabetes and improve cardiovascular health among people with serious mental health conditions. Specific aims of this project are to: (1) develop a risk prediction tool using early-stage treatment data; (2) conduct a pre-implementation qualitative study with health system stakeholders; and (3) pilot-test a clinical decision tool based on findings from Aims 1 and 2. These specific aims are supported by a training plan focused on advanced predictive analytics and machine learning; qualitative methods in implementation science; and, pragmatic clinical trial design.
