Sujoy Chakravarty (Ph.D., Carnegie Mellon University) is an Associate Research Professor and Health Economist at the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy. He conducts empirical research that utilizes economic and statistical modeling of large databases to evaluate the effects of state and federal policies on patient access to care and health outcomes, with a particular focus on vulnerable populations experiencing social and economic insecurity or complex behavioral and physical health conditions. His streams of research include evaluation of Medicaid policies meant to improve the delivery and financing of services among low income populations, examination of provider and health system factors contributing to racial and ethnic disparities among disabled adults, and the impact of organizational characteristics on hospital provided services. He is the Principal Investigator for the evaluation of successive five year Medicaid Section 1115 demonstration waivers in New Jersey. This work involves the assessment of multiple Medicaid policies, including safety net hospital incentives to improve delivery system transformation through the hospital Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, service delivery and financing changes for disabled populations receiving long term services and supports (LTSS), and expansion in access and benefits for beneficiaries utilizing substance use disorder services.
