Research Interests for Patients

Dr. Hirsh's area of research interest is the impact of health literacy on rheumatologic diseases. Health literacy is the match between the literacy skills of individuals and the expectations and demands of health systems. He has published on the mismatch between the literacy demands of patient education materials and how health literacy affects the discrepancy between patient and provider assessment of rheumatoid arthritis disease activity. Dr. Hirsh and his colleagues at Denver Health plan ongoing research regarding the predictors of this discrepancy and what interventions might help doctors and patients achieve concordance.
