Jamie Barner

Division Head and Professor of Health Outcomes
Clifford L. Klinck, Jr. Centennial Professor

Dr. Jamie C. Barner is a health outcomes researcher, Division Head and Professor in the Health Outcomes Division. She received her BS in Pharmacy from The University of Texas at Austin and both her MS and PhD degrees in Pharmacy Administration from Purdue University.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

REAL WORLD EVIDENCE/MEDICATION UTILIZATION
Dr. Barner’s research includes understanding factors that impact health care utilization and costs. Her work typically examines medication utilization patterns (adherence, persistence, switching) and its impact on health-related outcomes such as emergency department visits and hospitalizations. To addresses these issues, she utilizes real world data (e.g., large claims databases) and advanced statistical methods.

PHARMACIST SERVICES
Dr. Barner examines novel approaches to the provision of pharmacist services, as well as how those services impact patient outcomes. She utilizes mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative) to address these issues and incorporates both patients and pharmacists as study subjects.

HEALTH DISPARITIES
For both of her main research areas, Dr. Barner typically focuses on diverse and marginalized populations, as well as disease states associated with significant health disparities (e.g., sickle cell disease, diabetes, maternal health, mental health). Most of her studies with real world data utilize Texas Medicaid and many of her pharmacy study settings have been federally qualified health centers.
