Dr. Sieck’s research focuses on the interaction of health information technology (HIT) and patient engagement. With her background in health behavior and health education, her research seeks to understand how patients can utilize technology to increase their level of engagement, defined as their participation in their own health care and how healthcare systems can best support patients in these efforts. She also studies the development and validation of measures to be utilized by both researchers and healthcare systems to understand patient needs related to engagement.
