As an expert applied econometrician and statistician, I have published numerous papers that empirically demonstrate the value of various innovative care delivery models, particularly from the payer's perspective. For instance, I have recently published a paper that examined the impact of a complex care management model for adolescents with special care and health needs on their acute care utilization and total cost of care using health plan claims data. The ultimate goal of these studies is to establish the economic sustainability and feasibility of such innovations in today's real-world healthcare market context. In addition, my research area has also included developing predictive models and tools that can be used for early identification of high-cost patients in the future. The goal of these studies is to maximize the value of scarce healthcare resources and to avoid avoidable care via early detection and proactive identification of risk factors. Conducting such studies require deep knowledge and extensive experience in working and analyzing secondary data sources (e.g., health plan claims data and electronic health records).Professional BackgroundEDUCATION Ph.D in Policy Analysis and Management Cornell University, Ithaca, NY USA Concentration: Health Economics & Health Policy BA in Economics Stanford University, Stanford, CA USA RESEARCH EXPERIENCE Assistant Professor Department of Psychiatry University of Rochester Medical Center Rochester, NY USA 08/01/2018 - present Assistant Professor Department of Epidemiology & Health Services Research Geisinger Danville, PA USA 08/15/2010 - 07/31/2018 Post-doctoral Scholar Center for Health Care and Policy Research The Pennsylvania State University University Park, PA USA 08/15/2007 – 07/31/2010 Research Analyst Analysis Group/Economics Menlo Park, CA USA 08/01/2000 – 12/31/2001ResearchDr. Maeng's research interests focus on the issues of healthcare delivery, quality, and patient outcomes. The goal is to identify effective interventions, strategies, and innovations that will improve healthcare quality while controlling the cost. In particular, he specializes in using large observational data sets, such as electronic medical records and claims data, to evaluate the effects of quality improvement initiatives and interventions that are designed to influence the behaviors of healthcare providers as well as patients. He is also interested in developing complex statistical models for establishing causal inferences from non-experimental research settings. Dr. Maeng has performed both quantitative and qualitative analyses to examine the impacts of community-level interventions that aim to align the incentives of the key stakeholders within the healthcare sector.Awards2018 Early Stage Investigator of the YearSponsor: Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN)Location: Minneapolis, MN USA2016 Conference Paper of the YearSponsor: Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN)Location: Long Beach, CA USA2016 Star Research Achievement Award, 45th Critical Care CongressSponsor: Society of Critical Care MedicineVIEW ALL expand_morePublicationsJournal Articles1/10/2023Rock MC, Vaidya R, Till C, Unger JM, Hershman D, Ramsey S, Nehemiah A, Maeng D, Krouse R.
