Dr. Lynn Bohecker (2015) - ISU and St. Luke's Health Systems partner to foster research

Idaho State University’s Lynn Bohecker is passionate about research. She relishes the thrill of being on the ground floor of a breakthrough or on the front lines of scientific literature that can help the medical community improve patient care.

For the past year, Bohecker’s ground floor has been a small office in the east wing of the Idaho State University-Meridian Health Science Center where she holds the position of postdoctoral fellow in the Idaho Center for Health Research.

She is the first fellow to serve in the ISU-St. Luke’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship which began July 1, 2015 to accelerate research between both institutions. ISU and St. Luke’s Health systems share program costs and will add a second yearlong fellow position July 1.

“I think research provides an opportunity to obtain information that can change the health care community, to better inform how to help patients,” said Bohecker, who earned a Ph.D. in counselor education at ISU-Meridian in 2015.

Bohecker’s current project involves studies related to a model of care coordination developed by St. Luke’s pediatrician John Hanks and his team for the care of the “medically complex pediatric patient” – a child facing a complicated medical condition or treatment.

Her research will help the medical community better understand care from the perspective of the patient, siblings, parents, medical providers and community partners. The goal is to facilitate better care and reduce costs by decreasing emergency room visits and duplication of services, said Bohecker.

While working on her doctorate at ISU, Bohecker published articles in numerous peer-reviewed journals and helped ISU secure a $1 million grant to increase access to rehabilitation services for Idahoans with traumatic brain injuries. She currently is an adjunct professor at ISU in the counseling department.
