Dr. Carolyn Steele Gray

INVESTIGATOR

Dr. Carolyn Steele Gray is a Scientist at the Bridgepoint Collaboratory in Research and Innovation at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, as well as an Investigator with the Health System Performance Research Network at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Steele Gray is a health services researcher with a PhD in Health Policy from the University of Toronto (2013), and a Master’s in Public Policy and Administration from Ryerson University (2008). Prior to her current role as a Scientist Dr. Steele Gray was a postdoctoral fellow working at the University of Toronto and the Health System Performance Research Network.

Dr. Steele Gray’s program of work focuses on the role of health information technology in supporting patient-centred care delivery for patients with complex care needs. Among the areas of focus are to explore how technology can be leveraged to enable implementation and sustainability of innovative models of care as a means to support health system transformation. As part of this work she has been developing and evaluating new technologies, most notably the electronic Patient Reported Outcome (ePRO) mobile application and portal, and is developing change management and implementation frameworks to support implementation of new and existing technologies.

Dr. Steele Gray additionally founded and leads the multi-national eHealth Research Partnership for patients with Complex Chronic Disease and Disability (the eCCDD Network).The network includes an international group of researchers and policy makers who are seeking ways to adopt new technologies to support patients with complex care needs. The network has recently published their foundational work in Healthcare Quarterly which outlines the opportunities and challenges in adopting eHealth technologies in Canada, the US and Scotland.

Dr. Steele Gray has published work in the areas of eHealth and mHealth technologies for patients with complex needs, organizational change, health policy and patient-centred care delivery, as well as spoken at national and international conferences.
