Adil Moiduddin

Adil Moiduddin is a senior vice president and director of NORC’s Health Care Evaluation research department. He works on issues at the intersection of health care and public health. Moiduddin has 25 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 expertise in the health care safety net and health IT programs.

He also directs NORC’s Physician Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) support contract with the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). For this project, NORC supports the PTAC federal advisory committee’s work by conducting in-depth policy analysis, facilitating expert convenings, and providing analytic support central to the Committee’s review of alternative payment models proposals submitted for consideration.

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

Moiduddin directed smaller projects assessing population health interventions involving collaboration between health care providers, public health agencies and community-based organizations. He 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 that experience health disparities for the same office. He also 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 HHS including ASPE, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

Prior to coming to NORC, Moiduddin was a consultant for the Lewin Group. At Lewin, he conducted strategic planning, program evaluation and market analysis projects for government Agencies, biotechnology firms, and health care associations. He also served as an Analyst at ASPE's Division of Health Policy. At ASPE, he helped coordinate research activities across HHS and helped design the first ever national evaluation of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Moiduddin regularly presents his work at academic conferences including those sponsored by AcademyHealth, the American Public Health Association the American Medical Informatics Association, the Health Information Management Systems Society, and others. He has authored dozens of reports, white papers, peer reviewed articles, and book chapters. He is a member of AcademyHealth, the American Public Health Association and the American Evaluation Association.
