Professional Bio

RESEARCH INTERESTS: Dr. Li is an experienced policy and outcomes researcher with major focuses on the elderly and adults with mental illness. See his personal homepage https://webfiles.uci.edu/yli11/homepage/index.htm for updated details.




His current research includes: 1) outcomes assessment and quality report cards; 2) nursing home policies and impacts on quality; and 3) the quality of healthcare for persons with mental illness.

Dr. Li is currently funded by the NIA (National Institute on Aging) through two R01 grants, on both of which he serves as the Principal Investigator. The first project was designed to identify the key structural and process components of state technical assistance programs that effectively improve nursing home quality measured by risk-adjusted health outcomes and case mix adjusted deficiency citations. The second project aims to test the between- and within-physician variations in referring patients for cardiac procedures and to understand how differential referral patterns contribute to the observed disparities in receiving high quality CABG (coronary artery bypass graft) surgery among mentally-ill patients.
