Ohio State Alumni Wins Health Policy Statistics Section of the American Statistical Association Student Paper Competition

Dr. Robert Ashmead is a recipient of The Health Policy Statistics Section of the American Statistical Association Student Paper Competition. Dr.  Ashmead will present his work at the 2015 Joint Statistical Meetings, the largest gathering of statisticians in North America, held in Seattle this August. Dr. Ashmead’s paper titled “Health Care Policy Evaluation Using Propensity Score Matching: A Study of Care Consistent with a Patient-Centered Medical Home Using a Large Population Survey” is a joint work with his advisor, Dr. Bo Lu, associate professor with The Ohio State University College of Public Health’s Division of Biostatistics. In the paper, Ashmead reports that care consistent with a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is less than expected, given Ohio’s provider capacity.
