Christopher Barton, MD

Clinical Professor

Education:

UC Irvine
MD: UCSF
Training: UCSF
Board Certifications: Emergency Medicine

Research and Academic Interests: 

Dr. Barton's current research interest is Physiologic Informatics, which is the application of signal processing algorithms and methods to clinical data and using these methods to describe associations to clinical outcomes. Currently, he is focusing on acute neurologic emergencies, e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, and computing the "dose" of hypertension or hypotension and showing its relationship to neurologic outcome.

In collaboration with Dr. Claude Hemphill, Director of Neuro-Critical Care, he has developed a novel method to evaluate the impact of abnormal vital signs in the prehospital setting and in the ED on secondary brain injury. They have shown that the new method - using the area under the curve - is a more accurate method of assessing secondary brain insults in acute neurologic emergencies. In addition to this work, Dr. Barton joined the UCSF-SFGH Brain and Spinal Cord Injury (BASIC) group, a consortium of Neurosurgery, Neurology and Emergency Medicine Clinical Investigators.

For the first part of my career I did various forms of clinical research including pre-hospital controlled trials on topics such as epinephrine doses and mechanical aids in CPR and ACLS. In recent years I have begun to feel that the traditional RCT approach is too narrowly focused and will never keep up, much less catch up, with the vast majority of medical problems whose treatment is not evidence based, or whose evidence is out of date. Because of my editing and publishing experience, my research interests now have turned to trying to better understand the scientific peer review publication process through research into methods of educating peer reviewers, as well as research into bias and its impact on scientific publication. I am still engaged in this area of research because no effective interventions for improving peer review have yet been identified (contrary to the beliefs of many), and the workings (and thus the remediation) of bias due to conflict of interest are unexplored terrain - at least, unexplored by physicians.  

Research and Academic Interests: 

Dr. Callaham's current research interests include education in critical appraisal, efficacy of educational programs for peer reviewers of scientific journals, demographics and motivation of ED users, and ethical standards in scientific publications.

Renee Y. Hsia, M.D., M.Sc. is Professor of Emergency Medicine at UCSF. Dr. Hsia completed her undergraduate work at Princeton University from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and earned her medical degree at Harvard Medical School. She received her residency training at Stanford University and obtained a Masters of Science in health policy, planning, and financing from the London School of Economics and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She is board-certified in Emergency Medicine. Dr. Hsia speaks Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, and French, and provides emergency care to patients with a variety of backgrounds as an attending physician at San Francisco General Hospital, the only county hospital and trauma center for San Francisco, California.

Dr. Hsia’s broad research interests are in health services issues related to increasing access to emergency care and regionalization of care. She is funded by several private foundation grants, the National Institutes of Health, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to study population access to emergency departments and trauma centers in the U.S; the distribution of emergency care across income areas; factors associated with closure of emergency services (both emergency departments and trauma centers); how these closures affect patient outcomes, specifically focusing on patients with acute myocardial infarction, stroke, asthma/COPD, sepsis, and trauma; and the variation of costs and charges in the healthcare system. Her research program also focuses on healthcare costs and financing issues with regard to emergency care. She is also the site PI for several multi-site studies validating trauma triage criteria for different age groups as well as their ability to predict high-risk patients. She has published on these issues in a broad range of journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association, Health Affairs, American Journal of Public Health, Annals of Emergency Medicine, Academic Emergency Medicine, Journal of Trauma, Archives of Internal Medicine, and Medical Care. Her research has been widely publicized in print media, including the New York Times, the Associated Press, Reuters, USA Today, as well as national network news and radio. Dr. Hsia hopes that this work will help to inform policymakers on the monitoring and oversight of the equitable provision of critical services to patients across the country, and overall improvement of the system's ability to deliver healthcare.
