Dr. Koné has utilized her expertise in quantitative research methods to conduct research on multimorbidity, health outcomes, evaluation of health services/interventions and social determinants of health. She is currently completing  funded research on COVID-19, multimorbidity and the use of primary care, hospital and emergency department services using ICES data. She has led a large mixed method project using health administrative data, patient focus groups, and provider interviews to understand patients’ experience and develop strategies for patients with cancer, and comorbid physical and mental health conditions, and their health care utilization.
