Dr. Vogeli played a leading role in quality assessment projects within Massachusetts General Hospital and the Partners Healthcare System (now Mass General Brigham).  She developed the Partners Quality Report, first launched in fall 2000, and developed an outcomes reporting system for Partners Psychiatry and Mental Health.  Since 2012 has been actively involved in efforts to design and evaluate population health programs for Medicare, Medicaid and Commercial risk patients across Partners Healthcare.  She has designed algorithms to identify complex, rising risk patients, and is working to expand these efforts to incorporate psycho-social and clinical data. She is involved in numerous efforts to evaluate the impact of delivery system redesigns on patterns of health care utilization, quality of care, and health care costs.  Dr. Vogeli has collaborated on research grants funded by PCORI, The Commonwealth Fund, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and others.
