Yair Bannett, MD is an instructor in the division of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine. He completed a clinical fellowship in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford in 2019, and is currently completing a Master's degree in Health Research and Policy at Stanford University.
Dr. Bannett is interested in improving health care delivery in community-based primary care for children with developmental and behavioral conditions, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder. His research is currently focused on using natural language processing and machine learning methods that analyze electronic health record data to develop novel quality measures for ADHD treatment in primary care. Ultimately, he is interested in implementing clinician- and systems-level interventions aimed at improving health care delivery and health outcomes of children with developmental and behavioral disorders.
Dr.Bannett's PEDSnet project is titled, "Novel Quality Measures for Primary Care Management of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder" and will be explored using the following aims:
- To develop and test machine learning algorithms to accurately classify PCP adherence to guidelines in treatment of children aged 4-11 years with ADHD.
- To identify quality measures and quality improvement interventions for ADHD management in primary care that are considered acceptable, important, and feasible to implement.
