Using health services research methods, Dr. Ross’s research focuses on examining factors which affect the use or delivery of recommended ambulatory care services for older adults and other vulnerable populations, evaluating the impact of state and federal policies on the delivery of appropriate and higher quality care, and issues related to conflict of interest, evidence development, and drug safety. In addition, he collaborates with a multi-disciplinary team of investigators under contract for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to develop statistical models that are used to measure and publicly report hospital and ambulatory care clinical outcomes using administrative data.
