Health care is in a period of deep transformation. Global and domestic macroeconomic pressures are driving focus away from fee-for-service medicine toward high-quality care that is cost-efficient, also known as value-based care. This paradigm shift results in a move away from managing disease to managing the overall health of populations, setting the course for the Arnhold Institute’s Research and Development (R&D) agenda. R&D at the Arnhold Institute is rooted in data science.
The call for healthcare transformation coincides with unprecedented availability of data from electronic health records, genomics, insurance databases, clinical trials, and other sources. That data science team aims to leverage that data for knowledge discovery by applying recent advances in computer science and econometrics in novel ways. The data science team is an interdisciplinary group of computer scientists, economists, software developers, and clinician researchers.
The Arnhold Institute is investing in new academic capabilities and business partnerships to advance the fields of health system design and global health, leveraging the resources of the largest health system in New York.
The following projects are examples of partnerships that are advancing the Arnhold Institute’s mission of creating lasting global health impact at scale for the poor.
