Research Summary

My research uses big data in the form of large administrative claims databases and geospatial analysis (GIS) to analyze patterns of health care use among millions of emergency department users. I have previously studied hospital closures to predict how hospital-based care is affected by these events. I have also analyzed how natural disasters impact health care delivery and utilization of emergency care services.

My current research pursuits include studying diabetes among urban minority communities. In an NIH funded study, I will be comparing hot versus cold spots of poor glycemic control to identify neighborhood-level factors that explain why certain communities have better or worse diabetic health than others. In addition, I am studying how to improve rural health surveillance by using emergency claims data and novel geographic methods though a grant from the New York State Health Foundation.

By using geospatial analysis and data on the 1 in 5 Americans who visit an emergency department each year, my goal is develop new approaches of measuring health at a local geographic level to understand how to better serve the communities around us. I look forward to the day when the combination of big data and geographic analysis transforms our health care system into one that provides more than just health care, but delivers health.
