Dr. Andrea Gruneir
is a scientist at Women's College Research Institute. She uses large population-based administrative databases to understand the health services use patterns of older adults and identify opportunities to improve their care. The ultimate goal of her research is to understand weak links in transitional care, and to propose solutions that improve patient outcomes, thereby reducing rates of rehospitalization and subsequent health-care costs. Dr. Gruneir has recently been awarded the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) New Investigator Award to study emergency department visits among long-term care residents in Ontario.
