David G. Curry, PhD, APRN, Professor Emeritus
A nurse since 1977, and nurse practitioner since 1981, I find myself a
"jack-of-all-trades" in nursing. Feel free to review my resume.
My interest in informatics led me to begin my doctorate in Information Science at the University at Albany's Rockefeller
College. After completing most of my coursework and passing my general
comps, circumstances forced me to continue my doctoral work at Warren
National University in Health Administration, which I completed in August,
2007. My dissertation was on rural physician support for implementation of
Personal Health Records.
My research interest is in the electronic medical record. With almost 18% of our GDP spent on healthcare, its a challenge whose time is now. It's not enough to get medical records onto computers- we must be able to search those records for outcomes relative to the therapies employed. This must include outpatient visits, also. And patients must become responsible partners in their own care. They must learn about, and use, Personal Health Records, while their providers must become involved in the Medical Home system to further continuity of care and contain costs.
I retired from SUNY Plattsburgh at the end of the 2013-14 academic year, but continue to practice as a Nurse Practitioner in Plattsburgh.
