As Medical Director of Quality, Dr. Williams is interested in applying principles of high reliability to the intensive care unit environments of Texas Children's hospital to prevent harm, discover problems, and work collaboratively toward solutions. In addition he is a proponent of maximizing performance transparency. His current projects include using resilience engineering to minimize unnecessary variation in the delivery of care, specifically for pediatric septic shock and pediatric stroke. He is also working on a project to determine the clinical utility of noninvasive measurements of cardiac performance indices in pediatric patients.
