Dr. Natafgi's current work is focused on evaluating the effectiveness and impact of telehealth applications on care delivery and outcomes. He also has experience in qualitative data collection and analysis and community based participatory research, working closely with academic, patient, community, and other stakeholder partners. He co-led two PCORI-funded projects to develop Virtual Patient (VIP) Engagement Studio that aims to use technology to engage patients and caregivers in the development, implementation, and dissemination of research projects. He also collaborates with clinical and academic partners at Prisma Health, Clemson University, and Furman University on projects aimed to improve the virtual care delivery process using telemedicine and the programmatic evaluation of various behavioral health initiatives across the care continuum. His research encompasses a variety of methodological approaches including both quantitative and qualitative analyses, with emphasis on mixed-methods and a special interest in the engagement of patients, community members, health care providers, and other stakeholders.
