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. 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.

Dr. Boyle is an advisor to the Massachusetts Emergency Medical Service for Children (EMSC) Program, and has collaborated with regional pediatric hospitals, public safety and EMS agencies, and governmental bodies to advance the safety and quality of emergency care for children in the New England region. She is also an advisor to the National Emergency Telecritical Care Network, and is leading development and implementation of a federally-funded telehealth program for the Regional Disaster Health Response System in New England.
