Academic Interests

Dr. Prochaska is a hospitalist clinician and health outcomes researcher with a focus on how hospital based interventions for chronic diseases affect patient reported outcomes after hospital discharge. Dr. Prochaska is supported by a grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to study how red blood cell transfusion for hospitalized patients with anemia affects their fatigue, activity, and fatigability levels after they have been discharged from the hospital. Dr. Prochaska is also interested in the development, utilization, and sustainability of longitudinal clinical data research networks. He helps direct the University of Chicago Hospitalist Project research infrastructure as well as he has been involved in the implementation and integration of the Chicago Area Patient Centered Outcomes Research Network (CAPriCORN) into clinical research at the University of Chicago. He is Director of the University of Chicago Translational Medicine Program (CTMP), and a Co-Director of the Cultivating Health & Aging Researchers by Integrating Science, Medicine, & Aging (CHARISMA) Program, both of which train undergraduate students in clinical research.
