VISN 4 MIRECC Pittsburgh Investigators and Mentors - Armando Rotondi, Ph.D.

Armando Rotondi, Ph.D.
MIRECC Role(s): Investigator, Fellowship Primary Mentor
Bio: Dr. Rotondi is an Associate Professor of Health Systems Engineering and Health Services Research at the University of Pittsburgh in the Departments of Critical Care Medicine and Health Policy and Management. He is also an investigator in the VISN 4 Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center (MIRECC) at the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System (VAPHS).
His research program includes health care delivery design and evaluation. Specifically, he has a primary focus on understanding the needs of health care consumers with severe chronic illnesses and their family members or other informal support persons. He then uses this information to help design online interventions to promote self-management and well-being, particularly once consumers are outside of health care settings and back in their communities.
Research Interests: Dr. Rotondi’s current research includes federally funded projects to develop web-based treatment for returning Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom Veterans with complicated mild traumatic brain injury and their family members; a web-based intervention to deliver multi-family psychoeducational therapy to community dwelling persons with schizophrenia and their family members; and creation of guidelines for designing website interfaces for persons with special cognitive needs, such as those with severe mental illness and others with cognitive impairments.
