Hi, I’m Geoffrey Silvera (“Geoff” works great), a healthcare management scholar primarily focused in the field of health care management and my work centers on the ability of hospital executive decision-makers, mainly chief executive officers, to positively influence care quality, patient experience, and patient safety. This research has been published in numerous publication outlets such as Health Care Management Review (HCMR), Quality Management in Health Care (QMHC), Patient Experience Journal (PXJ), and Journal of Healthcare Information Management (JHIM) and has been awarded by AcademyHealth and Southern Management Association conferences. I presently serve as an Assistant Professor of Health Service Administration in Auburn University’s Department of Political Science (War Eagle!). I completed my doctorate in Health Policy and Administration at the Pennsylvania State University with a concentration in management and organizations (We Are!) and received both my masters (Health Administration) and bachelors (Psychology) degrees from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). In addition to my academic position, I serve on the editorial board of HCMR and as the Associate Editor of PXJ.
