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…

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…

The Return on Investment of Medicaid Expansion

January 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Loren Anthes, MBA, Public Policy Fellow, The Center for Medicaid Policy, The Center for Community Solutions

As a requirement of the state’s last budget, the Ohio Department of Medicaid was required to assess several aspects of the policy decision to expand Medicaid coverage to low-income non-disabled childless adults. With a new congress, a Trump administration focused on reform, and with the termination of the Kasich administration’s oversight of Medicaid, will the results of this study influence the decisions of policymakers? What did the assessment say and what were the outcomes? What is on deck in terms…

Social Resources, Environment, and Health: Linkages and Future Directions

December 16, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Noah J. Webster, PhD, Assistant Research Scientist, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan

Slides here: HSR-12-16-16 Slides   Abstract: The influence of social relationships on health is well-documented. Recent advances in methods used to assess and analyze social networks and the availability of representative and longitudinal data have led to more nuanced examinations of this association. Furthermore, current research continues to document the important role of context (e.g., environmental, socio-economic, etc.) in shaping the link between relationships and health. This talk will highlight findings from recent studies exploring interconnections between social resources, environmental…
