Improving Health Care Delivery for Geriatric Patients with Multiple Chronic Conditions
I’m interested in targeted approaches to health care improvement for geriatric patients with multiple morbidities, as well as the interplay between health services and the social determinants of health for these vulnerable older adults. To examine these complex relationships, I am constructing hierarchical models of administrative panel data. The expertise of researchers at the Canadian Centre for Health Economics has been critical to informing the development and testing of these econometric models.
