Dr. Singh has two major interests. The first is her focus on laboratory test stewardship, and on the mechanisms used to optimize the type and frequency of physician test orders to achieve better clinical outcomes and reduce waste. Her second interest is clinical informatics and the use of machine learning to determine key drivers in healthcare.
Dr. Singh leads TRUU-Lab a national initiative to give rational and easily understood names to lab tests. She is board-certified in Clinical Pathology, and in Clinical Informatics.
