Timothy P. Hogan, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Population and Data Sciences and joined the faculty in late 2019. He is also the Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) eHealth Partnered Evaluation Initiative and a Research Health Scientist within VA’s Center for Healthcare Organization and Implementation Research, one of 18 centers of innovation and research excellence across the country that comprise VA’s national Health Services Research and Development Service.

Dr. Hogan completed a VA postdoctoral fellowship in Health Services Research, earned both his PhD and MS in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and his BS in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to joining UT Southwestern, he was an Associate Professor in the Division of Health Informatics and Implementation Science within the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Dr. Hogan’s program of research encompasses three broad areas: 1) consumer health informatics; 2) implementation of interventions to improve healthcare delivery; and 3) management of patients with complex health care needs. He is passionate about information and communication technologies designed for patients, caregivers, and clinical teams, and how those technologies can best be implemented into practice. His funded studies have focused on individuals living with complex, chronic conditions and how they access and use health information, as well as the implementation and evaluation of consumer health informatics applications to support patient engagement and self-management.

As part of his fellowship training in VA, Dr. Hogan was formally introduced to Implementation Science – a domain of translational research focused on methods and strategies to promote integration of research evidence into routine health care practice – and has considerable knowledge of implementation concepts, frameworks, and study designs. He is also a trained field researcher with expertise using qualitative and mixed-method approaches (qualitative and quantitative) to collect and analyze data. For these reasons, he has collaborated on projects spanning diverse clinical contexts and patient populations, including spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, diabetes, heart disease, COPD, and HIV.
