    Dr. Mónica Pérez Jolles is a health services researcher with expertise in econometrics and mixed methodology as well as community-based participatory research. Her research focuses on: a) evaluating complex health interventions and developing tools to increase the capacity of health care settings to implement these interventions, particularly patient/family-centered coordinated care, and b) testing culturally designed patient activation and shared decision making interventions in primary care settings. Dr. Pérez Jolles has experience collaborating in two pragmatic trials recruiting hard-to-reach minority populations as well as leading secondary data analyses using national surveys such as the Medical Expenditures Panel Data (MEPS) and the National Survey of Private Child and Family Serving Agencies (NSPCFSA). Last, Dr. Pérez Jolles has investigated the organizational and managerial context of human and health service agencies as they relate to how they innovate and deliver accessible services to underserved families, including mental health. As a junior researcher, she has disseminated her research trough 16 peer reviewed scientific publications addressing the individual, provider and organizational aspects of health care services and through national and international conference presentations.
