About

Rebecca Abbott is the assistant director of research process improvement for Dell Medical School. Seeking to dramatically improve upon traditional research procedures, Abbott is leading the development of research-related processes, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of research activity and facilitating the integration of research operations throughout Dell Med.

Abbott has more than 13 years’ experience in health care using change management principles, project management proficiency, efficiency optimization techniques (e.g., lean six-sigma) and statistical analysis to solve complex problems and incorporate the best solutions into operations.

Before joining Dell Med, Abbott reported to the chief quality officer for The Seton Health Care family and was responsible for monitoring a large network-level project portfolio. This role built upon her experience as a clinical outcomes consultant, supporting efforts to improve clinical quality and financial reimbursement. Prior to her time at Seton, Abbott worked in research at Duke University Medical Center supporting studies on pain management and social/psychological factors impacting health.

Abbott received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wesleyan University and a master’s degree in psychology from Duke University.
