Dr. Lee’s main research interest is in health care organizations. In addition, he has conducted studies on issues related to health care utilization, physician manpower, and health information technology. His current research applies the theories of social capital, social support and social networks to the understanding of health care organizations and patient behavior. At the organizational level, he examines how network participation and external institutional ties affect the strategic behavior and service provision of health care organizations. At the individual patient level, his research examines how social support interacts with health literacy in affecting access to health care and health outcomes in several patient populations including Medicare beneficiaries, veterans, Spanish-speakers, demented elders and their caregivers. His recent research addresses issues related to the provision of patient-centered care, access to hemodialysis among end-stage-renal-disease patients, and adoption of health information technology in U.S. hospitals.
Dr. Lee’s work has appeared in major health services research and management journals such as Health Services Research, Medical Care, Medical Care Research and Review, Health Affairs, Health Care Management Review, Journal of Healthcare Management, Journal of Rural Health, Journal of Urban Health, Journal of Ambulatory Care Management, The Gerontologist, Human Relations, Social Science & Medicine, Health Policy, American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Administration and Policy in Mental Health, and British Journal of Management.
