Adil Moiduddin

Adil Moiduddin is a Vice President working on issues at the intersection of health care and public health. Moiduddin works closely with NORC’s Executive Vice President for Research on business development and strategic initiatives related to health data, programs and policy. Moiduddin has 18 years of experience in health services research, consulting and program evaluation. He has extensive knowledge of federal and state programs to support health care financing and delivery with particular expertise in the health care safety net and health IT programs.

He also directs a multi-million dollar evaluation of 18 Health Care Innovation Awards (HCIAs) funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. These are projects led by community providers and other stakeholders aiming to improve health care quality, control health care costs and raise overall health. The interventions foster integration and communication across health care settings and help patients access health education, behavioral health and social support resources. Each project focuses on a population with conditions (e.g., diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease) that drive morbidity, mortality and health care costs in the United States.

The evaluation includes analysis of Medicare, Medicaid and private sector administrative data documenting cost and health care utilization. These analyses use a difference-in-difference or two cohort longitudinal design depending on availability of data, sample size and comparison group options. Moiduddin is also leading dozens of in-person structured interviews and focus groups with HCIA providers, community-based stakeholders, administrators, patients and caregivers.

Moiduddin directs smaller projects assessing population health interventions involving collaboration between health care providers, public health agencies and community-based organizations. He recently completed an evaluation of the Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Program (SHARP) for the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and a Congressionally-mandated report on the use of health IT to address the needs of communities experience health disparities for the same office. He also recently completed a project using data from the National Center for Health Statistics to assess differences in primary care visits between federally funded health centers and other providers. The study also looks at variation between primary care visits led by nurse practitioners and physician assistants compared to those led by physicians.

In addition to the funders mentioned above, during his career at NORC, Moiduddin has directed projects for the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, the Congressional Research Service and many Agencies and offices within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) including the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
