CMS Data Projects

These researchers are involved in various projects concerning aspects of Medicare and Medicaid. In one project, the group is analyzing Relative Resource Use measures. The goal of another project is to determine the feasibility of using social network methods to identify provider groups that could serve as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). A third explores approaches to identify and depict variation in care for Medicare beneficiaries that may further enable value-based purchasing.
