Ms. Phan is the Manager of Epidemiology & Effectiveness for the Epidemiology Department at Baylor Scott & White Health. She holds certification in Lean Six Sigma Green Belt in Healthcare, received her Master of Science in Healthcare Management and a second Master of Science in Information Technology and Management from the University of Texas at Dallas. Ms. Phan completed the Epidemiology Department’s research internship, and currently serves as a data coordinator on several of Dr. Filardo’s studies - examples include a 4-year NHLBI multicenter R01 (1R01HL103683) investigating the effectiveness of prophylaxis and management of new-onset post-CABG Atrial Fibrillation in over 32,000 patients, a 2-year industry-funded population-based study investigating ranolazine’s potential to prevent short- and long-term re-hospitalizations after cardiac catheterization/percutaneous coronary intervention, and a large 3-year AHRQ population-based R01 (R01HS018576) studying the effectiveness of open versus endovascular surgery for the management of abdominal aortic aneurysms in over 6,000 patients. She is skilled in data registries development and management as well as data acquisition and data quality monitoring/evaluation.

Effectiveness of ranolazine at admission and/or discharge in reducing re-admissions after PCI

 

This population-based, multi-site observational study will provide important information about ranolazine’s potential to prevent short- and long-term re-hospitalizations after cardiac catheterization/PCI, and the associated impact on costs of care. This information will be useful in updating clinical guidelines/best practices for patients undergoing cardiac catheterization/PCI, and to decision-makers setting policies regarding the indications for and re-imbursement coverage of ranolazine as a prophylactic and/or therapeutic agent.

Hybrid Revascularization for Patients with Multivessel Coronary Artery Disease

 

This study aim is to assess outcome differences with composite of acute kidney injury, major or minor bleeding, admission for pleural effusion post surgery and reoperation during index hospitalization between patients whose CAD was treated with a hybrid revascularization and patients whose CAD was treated with conventional multivessel CABG. The study will also assess differences between hybrid revascularization strategies (concomitant revascularization versus staged approach –with PCI coming before or after surgery) and renal failure and bleeding, evaluate and characterize each coronary lesion to determine if these lesions were optimal for the hybrid approach, or if they affected the need for repeat revascularization, and utilize the results of the study to create a registry moving forward to serve as the basis for a prospective evaluation of hybrid revascularization.
