Dr. Robert J. Lucero is an Associate Professor of Nursing at the University of Florida and a Research Health Scientist at the VA HSR&D Center of Innovation on Disability and Rehabilitation Research in Gainesville, FL. As a Pre-Doctoral Fellow in the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research, he investigated the link between patient outcomes and the quality of nursing care. In 2010, Dr. Lucero completed research training in health informatics as a Post-doctoral Fellow in the Center for Evidence-based Practice in the Underserved at the Columbia University School of Nursing. Dr. Lucero is an elected Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine. Dr. Lucero’s research focuses on enabling health promotion and enhancing health care delivery through consumer health informatics. Dr. Lucero is the PI of an NIH subcontract from the New York City Hispanic Caregiver Research Program (1R01NR014430). This study is focused on extending the use of an electronic personal health record (ePHR) by designing, developing, and evaluating a web-based Family-Health Information Management System for use by Latino caregivers. As Co-I of a large scale community-based survey of predominately Latino residents funded by AHRQ(1R01HS019853), Dr. Lucero is investigating factors associated with interest in using ePHRs among this unique population in Northern Manhattan in New York City.
