Dr. Griffey has led departmental quality, peer review, error-based learning programs, and has directed departmental information systems for nearly fifteen years. His operational, research, and teaching interests center around quality and patient safety, and the impact of information systems on these areas. This has led to work in evidence-based imaging and radiation safety, health literacy, and patient-provider communication, implementation science, and organizational performance.

Dr. Griffey is involved with national measurement development and evaluation, serving as the ACEP representative to the American Medical Association’s Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement (PCPI), on various committees of the PCPI and the National Quality Forum.
