M. Kit Delgado, MD, MS, is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Epidemiology and a practicing trauma center emergency physician. He leads the Behavioral Science & Analytics For Injury Reduction (BeSAFIR) lab, which applies data science and behavioral economics for preventing injuries and for improving acute care. BeSAFIR has three complementary lines of research:1) Analysis of large health system, state, and national datasets of emergency department encounters to elucidate opportunities to improve emergency and trauma care and to prevent injuries. 2) Development and testing of health system interventions for promoting opioid stewardship for acute pain management and for facilitating the treatment of patients with opioid use disorder in the emergency department. Dr. Delgado currently leads the Acute Pain Workgroup of the University Pennsylvania Health System Opioid Task Force. 3) Development and testing of interventions for preventing motor vehicle crashes from distracted and alcohol-impaired driving by leveraging smartphone technology and insights from behavioral economics. This work includes partnerships with large U.S. auto-insurers. Dr. Delgado's work is funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He is a Senior Scholar in the Center Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB), a Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) Senior Fellow, and a faculty member in the Center for Emergency Care Policy and Research (CECPR), the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE), the Penn Injury Science Center (PISC), and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP). He has previously served as a member of the NASEM Committee on Accelerating Progress to Reduce Alcohol-Impaired Driving Fatalities and the Committee on Evidence-based Clinical Practice Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for Acute Pain. He received his M.D. from Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons and his M.S. in Health Services Research from Stanford University.
