Jon Mark Hirshon, MD, MPH, PhD, is a site principal investigator for two recently funded studies. As a subcontractor on an award received by Johns Hopkins University from the Health Resources and Services Administration, Dr. Hirshon will participate in the development and testing of a triage tool that will assist EMS personnel with transport decisions for sick and injured children. The project is intended to elucidate reasons for secondary transports of pediatric patients and thus decrease their frequency. He is also a subcontractor on a study funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, through which he will collect data that will be used to assess quality of care and patient safety at dialysis centers.
