Biomedical Informatics; Clinical Informatics; Pediatric Hospitalist
Dr. Kendria Hall is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI), Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo, SUNY (UB). I completed the Clinical informatics fellowship and a Master’s in Biomedical Informatics at UB. Prior to joining the BMI department, I was a pediatrician caring for hospitalized children. I have worked in different capacities as a pediatric hospitalist. In my previous position, I was instrumental in developing a discharge educational class for new mothers, part of the breastfeeding team integral to our hospital becoming Baby-Friendly, and project site leader for the New York State perinatal collaborative for safe sleep.
As a clinical informatician focusing on healthcare data to improve clinical outcomes, my research interests include population health, telehealth, and using healthcare data to reduce healthcare disparities. Dr. Hall is conducting research on how to leverage health information technology to reduce disparities in access to care, quality of care, patient-clinician communication, and health outcomes for populations that experience health disparities.
