Dr. Goldsmith is interested in clinical informatics in the critical care environment. He's specifically focused on the ways clinicians interact with patient-generated data to make clinical decisions. Dr. Goldsmith has studied the impact of high-frequency vital sign monitoring on bias in conventional EMR reporting, the impact of analytic algorithms in supporting clinician decision making, and trying to understand how to make these clinical decision support tools more useful in the clinical space. His ongoing research looks at ways to improve clinician comprehension and decision-making.
