Barriers to Care Among Patients with Endometriosis

This project serves to elucidate the barriers to care for patients with endometriosis. Barriers to care will be assessed through survey questionnaire responses completed by individuals with an ICD code of endometriosis in their medical chart.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

This project serves to elucidate the barriers to care for patients with endometriosis. Barriers to care will be assessed through survey questionnaire responses completed by individuals with an ICD code of endometriosis in their medical chart.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (endometriosis)
  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral

Scientific Approaches

We will use the controlled tier of the Researcher Workbench to assess the health care access and utilization surveys completed by individuals with endometriosis and assess which barriers, if any, does this participant population face.

Anticipated Findings

The anticipated study results include determination of specific barriers in place that patients with endometriosis face. This will enable us to provide recommendations for improving access to healthcare for patients with endometriosis.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

The proposed research project aims to first assess whether access to primary care physicians is different among racial and ethnic groups. Then, we will access how COVID-19 may have impacted individuals' health habits. The significance of this project is to help medical providers gain a better understanding of the impact of COVID-19 on their patients.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Population Health

Scientific Approaches

Using the COPE survey in addition to the Healthcare Access and Utilization survey, I will assess how the COVD-19 pandemic has influenced access to healthcare and whether significant differences in access to healthcare and health behaviors exist among racial and ethnic groups.

Comparisons between cases and controls will be performed using Pearson's χ2 test. Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals will also be computed during analysis.

Anticipated Findings

Our findings will demonstrate how access to basic medical services may have changed in the recent year due to COVID-19 and how medical providers can be cognizant of any disproportionate impact COVID-19 has had on racial and ethnic groups when working with their patients.

Influence of Access to Healthcare on Cancer Screening Among Minority Populations

The aim for this research project is to utilize the All of Us surveys on health access utilization together with the data on cancer screening to understand challenges that impede individuals from adhering to cancer screening guidelines.

The aim for this research project is to utilize the All of Us surveys on health access utilization together with the data on cancer screening to understand challenges that impede individuals from adhering to cancer screening guidelines.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral

Scientific Approaches

This project will examine health surveys of individuals in conjunction with electronic health records to better understand barriers to cancer screening.

Anticipated Findings

Prior studies have shown specific ethnic groups are at higher risk of developing certain cancers (e.g. CRC, cervical cancer). With the All of Us Research Program, we hope that by studying participants' medical records and health surveys to contribute to the literature on cancer screening disparities among minority populations. The findings of our study may provide insight on public health measures that could be taken to address disparities in cancer screening.
