Pengsheng Ni, MD, MPH has a medical degree from Shanghai Medical University is Research Associate Professor of Health Law, Policy & Management at Boston University School of Public Health. His main research interest is statistical methodology development and application for patient report outcome. His current work is applying different Item Response Theory (IRT) models to practical health care assessment issues, building Unidimensional and Multidimensional Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) models. He has been worked in multiple health care outcome assessments development process (such as Activity Measure for Post-acute Care (AM-PAC), Late Life Function and Disability Instrument, Work Disability Functional Assessment Battery (WD-FAB), etc.), which included the data collection program development, item bank construct, CAT program development and evaluation.
