Sarah Reeves’ research is focused on improving the delivery of preventive care to children with chronic conditions. This work includes identifying opportunities for improvement for recommended preventive care among children with sickle cell disease, such as receipt of transcranial Doppler screening, appropriate antibiotic prophylaxis, and use of hydroxyurea therapy.

Current projects include: 1) Identifying opportunities to improve hydroxyurea use among children with sickle cell disease; 2) Quality Measurement, Evaluation, Testing, Review, and Implementation Consortium (Q-METRIC); and 3) Variations in health services use among children with sickle cell trait.

Co-sponsored with Clinical Futures, a Center of Emphasis within the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute.
