I am an Assistant Professor at Boston University School of Medicine and Senior Health Scientist / Health Economist at VA Boston Healthcare System. My research spans multiple areas: a) disparities in healthcare access and outcomes, b) health reform, c) health outcomes evaluation, and d) comparative and cost effectiveness.
I have many years of investigator experience studying the role of uninsurance, out-of-pocket costs and limited health literacy in understanding racial/ethnic disparities in healthcare utilization and outcomes, with recent applications to acute stroke, joint replacement and HPV vaccination.
Current research also includes evaluation of the impact of Massachusetts health reform on access to care, with focus on cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and cancer care.
Another area of research has been developing improved risk adjustment models (using laboratory test and vital signs data) to better evaluate patient outcomes and provider performance, with applications to several inpatient admission cohorts (including acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pneumonia and acute stroke).
I am also interested in effectiveness and cost evaluations. Ongoing and recent studies include: a) cost effectiveness of HCV protease inhibitors, b) HCV costs in the VA, c) geographic variation in costs of acute stroke care, and d)comparative effectiveness of high vs. low intensity VTE prophylaxis agents after elective joint replacement.
I also have extensive experience in the use of large observations data (clinical, administrative and survey), and expertise in the application of advanced statistical and econometric methods. My research has been funded by NIH, AHRQ and VA.
