About Jesse

Jesse Chandler is a researcher with interests in measurement and methodology. He has directed surveys supporting training and technical assistance programs offered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, overseeing measure development, testing survey instruments, and analyzing data for surveys targeted at medical practices (for the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative) and Accountable Care Organizations (for learning systems for Accountable Care Organizations). He has held similar leadership roles on other projects that recruited parents, vocational rehabilitation applicants, and college graduates.

In addition, he is a methodologist with interests in data quality and data visualization.
