Mathematica is pleased to announce the appointment of Sule Gerovich as a senior fellow. This title recognizes the national reputation she has built as a thought leader in her field, as well as her strong leadership in helping us achieve our mission to improve public well-being through her contributions to state health initiatives. Gerovich is a nationally recognized expert in multipayer accountable care organization models and hospital global budgets.
Gerovich has been instrumental in managing and leading Mathematica’s state health policy portfolio. She developed new payment models, cost benchmarks, and performance measures using Medicare and all-payer claims databases. She has led several projects and assisted health policy leaders in several states, including Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Washington, through her work in new payment methods. In addition, she has contributed to state health policy research working with AcademyHealth, the National Association of Health Data Organizations, and the National Academy of State Health Policy to advance state health policy through evidence. While working for the State of Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission, the Milbank Foundation recognized Gerovich as a member of its Emerging State Leaders Program, reflecting her contributions to Maryland’s all-payer total cost of care model and measuring total cost using all-payer claims databases.
“Sule is recognized both within Mathematica and nationally as a leader who understands state health care policy, particularly how to design and implement new payment models, contain health care spending, and address other state and rural health care challenges,” said Jonathan Morse, senior vice president and managing director, Health Program Improvement. “We’re delighted to recognize her achievements and contributions to the field.”
Gerovich also has a clinical background, having worked as a clinical nurse for six years in inpatient settings. She was a recipient of a Fulbright Graduate Student Scholarship and holds a Ph.D. in public health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and an M.P.P. from the same university.
