Designing Observational Studies using Propensity Score Cardinality Matching and the SUPPORT Right Heart Catheterization Study

May 12 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
David Ngendahimana, MSc and Thomas E. Love, PhD

We will demonstrate the use of modern matching techniques to address the issue of treatment selection bias (both overt and hidden) in the design and analysis of observational studies. Confronted with the problem of finding an appropriate matched sample to compare two exposures while accounting for imbalances in covariates, several approaches exist. A new method called cardinality matching (developed by Zubizarreta et al. 2013) has some very attractive properties, including a requirement of meaningful input on both the clinical and…

Forecasting the Burden of Type 2 Diabetes Using Electronic Health Records

March 31 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Douglas D. Gunzler, Ph.D.; KL2 Scholar; Assistant Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology & Biostatistics; Center for Health Care Research & Policy; MetroHealth Medical Center; Case Western Reserve University

Abstract One-size-fits-all approaches to patient care for individuals with Type 2 Diabetes (DM2) have often failed to show objective results in managing DM2. Patients with risk factors for adverse DM2 health outcomes are more likely to struggle with managing DM2. We propose methods, using electronic health records, to improve DM2 patient monitoring by measuring individualized risk level to forecast the burden of the disease. In order to help facilitate greater taxonomy in how to care for individual DM2 patients, we…

Leading and Managing Value Based Care: Are We Up to the Task?

March 24 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Richard Snow, DO, MPH, Primary Care Physician, Muskingum Valley Health Care; Principal, Applied Health Services

Abstract The development of skills necessary to provide better health, better healthcare and lower costs will be rewarded under evolving payment models. Early findings from the Comprehensive Primary Care and the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Initiatives demonstrate mixed results in terms of cost reductions.  Competencies in change management, clinical informatics/ health services research and quality improvement are critical in leading system redesign to achieve the triple aims. We will discuss key skills and potential clinician curriculum using 2 examples…

Multimorbidity and Health Outcomes: Using a Data-driven Approach to Gain New Insights

March 10 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Siran M. Koroukian, PhD, Population Health and Outcomes Research Core,, Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative, Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University

Brief Abstract: In outcomes research, we often equate multimorbidity with multiple chronic conditions, thus ignoring functional, cognitive, and sensory impairment, as well as a number of other geriatric syndromes that are highly prevalent in older adults. In addition, we tend to account for one condition at a time, when many of these conditions are closely inter-related and present in clusters. Using a data-driven approach, we have identified combinations of conditions that are associated with health outcomes and health care use.…

Developing Localized Implementation Strategies for Community-level Obesity Prevention

February 24 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Darcy A. Freedman, PhD, MPH, Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Associate Director, Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods, School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University

Abstract: Obesity is a complex health issue influenced by a number of factors including community context. The aim of this presentation is to describe a mixed methods consensus-based modeling approach used to identify community readiness and capacity factors related to implementation of community-level interventions that address contextual factors influencing obesity risk. These include nutrition-related policy, systems, and environmental interventions such as farmers’ markets, healthy food retail initiatives, healthy eating in childcare policies, and farm-to-school programming. Consensus modeling methods resulted in…
