A collaborative research project involving Danny Myers, a SISLT Ph.D. student, and his colleagues — Mirna Becevic, Rachel Mutrux, Ben Francisco, Paul Michael Foreman, and Karen Edison, was selected as a winning poster for the School of Medicine category during the 5th Annual MU Health Innovation and Improvement Sharing Days. The poster submitted was titled, IMPACT Asthma ECHO: Interdisciplinary Telementoring for Increased Adherence to Guidelines and Improved Outcomes.

Sharing Days provides an opportunity for system-wide sharing and dissemination of the wide range of exciting innovations and improvement initiatives occurring within the schools of Health Professions, Medicine and Nursing; University Physicians (UP); and University of Missouri Health Care (MUHC).

Their poster was chosen by Dr. Patrick Delafontaine, Dean of the School of Medicine, as one of 11 winners, out of 91 submissions. “I felt a great sense of honor and accomplishment knowing that our poster was selected out of so many submissions,” said Myers.

His role in the project was providing the background information and assisting on the claims data analysis. In addition to being enrolled in the Information Science & Learning Technologies doctoral program, Myers is the associate director for the Missouri Telehealth Network and project manager for Show-Me ECHO.

Congratulations to Myers and his colleagues!
