Dr. Boyle is a pediatric emergency physician and a health services researcher. Her research focuses on developing and testing technological interventions to improve patient outcomes in emergency settings. She uses medical simulation, mixed methods, and stakeholder-led design to develop interventions, and various clinical research methods, including clinical trials, to test interventions. She has focused on the impact of telehealth on efficiency of healthcare utilization, and efficacy in resource limited emergency settings. Her prior work focused on clinical tools and novel radiation-sparing technologies to improve diagnostic accuracy of vulnerable pediatric populations in the ED setting.

Based on her experience and expertise developing and researching strategies to improve patient outcomes, Dr. Boyle was nominated to and currently serves on the Educational Science and Programs Subcommittee for the American Heart Association. Dr. Boyle has been a member of the Advisory Board for the Massachusetts Emergency Medical Service for Children (EMSC) Program since 2018, collaborating with regional pediatric hospitals, public safety and EMS agencies, and governmental bodies to advance the safety and quality of emergency care for children in New England. She is also a clinical advisor to the National Emergency Telecritical Care Network, and is leading development and implementation of a new federally-funded telehealth program for the Regional Disaster Health Response System in New England.
