Charles Bailey, MD, PhD

Attending Physician, Academic Investigator in Clinical Informatics at CHOP

Dr. Bailey is a member of the Divisions of Oncology and Hematology at CHOP. His clinical focus is on leukemia and lymphoma, and particularly on acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common type of childhood cancer. He also works on improving quality of supportive care for children with cancer.

His research centers on the development of learning health systems, which are based on the principle that every time a patient receives care, we must use what we learn to improve our ability to care for children. In order to do this, we need to make better use of the information patients entrust to us as part of their care, and discover new ways to do effective research using clinical information, and to being the results of clinical research back to the care of patients.

Dr. Bailey’s work includes creating ways to share data across hospitals, to recognize the clinical implications of information gathered from different sources, and to provide support to clinicians in using this information more effectively.
