Biography

Jeptha P. Curtis, MD, is an Associate Professor in the Section of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons before training in internal medicine at the Duke University Medical Center and completing his fellowships in clinical and interventional cardiology at Yale. Dr. Curtis directs the American College of Cardiology Analytic Center at CORE. He has also led the development of registry-based outcome measures for CMS examining 30-day mortality following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and ICD and currently oversees the maintenance of the registry measures, contributes to the development of new measures, and assists in the development of approaches to cardiovascular surveillance. Currently, he is conducting a mixed methods research study of hospitals that perform PCI (TOP PCI). The study will begin with a qualitative component in which top performing hospitals will be visited to identify candidate strategies, and will then move to a quantitative survey of PCI hospitals to determine which strategies are most closely associated with better patient outcomes. Through critically examining the practice of interventional cardiology, Dr. Curtis hopes to improve the quality of care delivered to patients with coronary artery disease and those undergoing PCI.
