Research Areas and Projects

Dr. Antimisiaris leads the Frazier Polypharmacy and Medication Management Program, which is a program dedicated to education, research and outreach to help solve the problems associated with polypharmacy.  Her primary research interest is in the area of decision making about medication use by all stake holders (prescribers, caregivers, healthcare systems, and consumers), and the factors which influence those decisions.  Recent projects focus on monitoring of medication use: i.e. how the healthcare system tracks and documents the use each medication a person is taking, what consumers know about what they are taking, and might there be ways that we can improve upon the current status of medication use monitoring?  Machine learning in predictive monitoring of medication use is developing area of research Dr. Antimisiaris is working on with engineering colleagues.
