      Dr. Goldman is a practicing internist at San Francisco General Hospital where she supervises residents, has an outpatient primary care clinic, and attends on the inpatient service. Her research and policy work focuses on improving and transforming health systems for underserved diverse populations. She has developed and implemented systems innovations that improve care transitions, value of care, and care coordination efforts across medical and behavioral health settings. She is the San Francisco Medicine-Psychiatry Liaison, and CareLinkSF Quality and Reporting Liaison for the San Francisco Health Network. She is also part of the implementation science team for the Center for Health Care Value Caring Wisely 2.0 at San Francisco General Hospital.

      As part of her work to improve the science of quality measurement, she led the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development Validation Project which assessed the accuracy of California patient discharge data, and was awarded AHRQ grant funding to evaluate the impact of administrative data quality on hospital performance metrics. Her expertise in using administrative data for quality assessments has been nationally recognized, through her participation in the AHRQ Quality Indicator Expert Panel.
