Ryan Shaw
Associate Professor in the School of Nursing

I lead teams that discover how to integrate patient generated health data and emerging technologies into novel care delivery models for patients with complex chronic illnesses. This includes data from wearables, sensors and devices that monitor and augment patient care and interface with electronic health records (EHRs). With these tools I engineer equitable care models that capitalize on the growing digital health infrastructure of health systems and society.

As the Director of Duke University School of Nursing's Health Innovation Lab, located adjacent to Duke Hospital, I oversee a space for entrepreneurship, product development and testing, as well as modeling and evaluating care delivery processes.

My program of research is funded by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as previously by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), among others.

Additionally, I teach classes in health informatics and research methods, and mentor students to become the next generation of health scientists and clinicians.

I currently co-lead two NIH-funded clinical trials:
EXTEND (grant R01NR019594): extend.nursing.duke.edu
Log2lose (grant: U24HL150227): log2lose.com
