Sujoy Chakravarty (Ph.D., Carnegie Mellon University) is an Associate Research Professor & Health Economist at the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy with primary emphasis on health economics and policy. His research examines the impact of state and federal policies relating to healthcare delivery and financing on patient access, efficiency and quality of care. He also studies hospital markets, focusing on the impact of changes in market structure, competition policy and ownership mix on provider behavior and patient care. His recent research includes identifying hospital utilization patterns that indicate gaps in patient care and how such findings may inform the implementation of the New Jersey Medicaid ACO Demonstration program; examining the effect of Medicare Part D prescription drug policy on coverage and access with focus on racial disparities in access; and assessing and evaluating care management initiatives for patients with complex conditions who have high hospital utilization. He is also leading the evaluation of the ongoing New Jersey Comprehensive Waiver Demonstration that introduces significant changes in delivery of behavioral health services, long-term services and supports, and hospital payment structure aimed at improving patient care and population health.
