Health researchers from Mathematica will join their peers this weekend at the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting, taking place June 4 to 7 in Washington, DC. Our team will present, in person and virtually, their latest insights on a diverse range of topics, including innovation in health, long-term care, and primary care.
The following are some notable sessions from the Mathematica team:
- Senior Vice President Erin Fries Taylor will speak on a topic of interest to current and prospective policy research professionals in a session titled Professional and Organizational Resilience: Thriving After Burnout.
- Principal Researcher Kate Stewart and Senior Researcher Amanda Markovitz are speaking at a special session titled Adjusting for the Influence of COVID-19 in CMMI Model Evaluations. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation is designing new models to support innovative patient-centered approaches to improving quality, accessibility, and affordability. This session will provide an overview of the new models and will share approaches used to account for COVID-19 in four separate evaluations.
- Senior Fellow Eugene Rich will present a paper called Benefits of the Range of Services Provided By Primary Care Physicians in a larger session that focuses on high-value health care innovations. Mathematica’s recent research on the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus evaluation shows how new Medicare alternative payment models present strong incentives for primary care practices to reduce unnecessary emergency department visits, hospital utilization, and overall spending.
- Senior Researcher Patricia Rowan will lead a session titled Improving Nursing Home Care, a panel discussion on a collection of research that provides insight into important issues of nursing home performance.
