Sarah supports clients in the identification of targeted populations, and champions the growing role of technology in healthcare and the innovative ways technology can be used to increase outreach and adherence.
Through her work with the Colorado Health Institute (CHI), Sarah researched various policy issues regarding long-term services and supports (LTSS), including an in-depth look at the differing health needs of older adults. She was the primary researcher for policy analysis on proposed Death with Dignity legislation in Colorado. Sarah also consulted on CHI’s access to care index which scored and compared each health statistic region in Colorado on the level of access to care for its residents.
As a research assistant with University of Colorado at Boulder, Sarah coordinated two separate studies regarding blindness discrimination and the effect of blindness on employment status. Sarah managed datasets, including database organization and input of data from the studies for over 150 participants. She revised and collaborated on presentations and papers to be published – formatting data into charts and graphs to visually present the study results.
Prior to CHI, Sarah helped transition a medical clinic from paper records to their new EHR system. Additionally, she assisted both directors and medical staff with patient charts, including preparations for satellite office visits.
