The New York University School of Medicine’s Department of Population Health (DPH) is a dynamic environment of excellence, innovation and growth with faculty across a wide range of disciplines including behavioral and social sciences, epidemiology, health services research, evaluation, biostatistics, and medical ethics with a particular focus on health equity.
The Health Evaluation and Analytics Lab (HEAL) is a unique research resource that contains New York Medicaid and other state administrative data to support studies of health and healthcare. HEAL is a joint venture between DPH and the NYU Wagner School of Public Service. The mission of HEAL is to conduct research and evaluations that assist in the administration of the New York Medicaid program and contribute to national scholarship on health and healthcare. The vision is to become a national resource for improving health and well-being of vulnerable communities and individuals. The lab is comprised of four faculty members and six analysts with strong programming and statistical skills for working with large healthcare data. The team works on many different studies of health and healthcare across diverse topics (e.g., specific health conditions, disparities in care). Some of the studies are construed and directed within the lab and others are guided by outside scientific partners. The team is transitioning into a new centralized data environment that will provide advanced technological capabilities and offer opportunities for creating new workflows to improve productivity and quality of research.
