Research Career Scientist
Matthew L Maciejewski PhD
Durham VA Medical Center, Durham, NC
Durham, NC
Funding Period: August 2010 - July 2020

BACKGROUND/RATIONALE:
I was awarded the Research Career Scientist award in August 2010 and received full funding in August 2011. I submitted for an RCS renewal in 2014 and it was renewed until 2020. As the one health economist awardee, I am committed to honorably represent the community of health economists through peer-reviewed research, mentoring of junior VA scientists, collaboration with clinician investigators and as a resource for the research and VA operations communities.

OBJECTIVE(S):
Research Career Scientists are expected to obtain peer-reviewed research; train/mentor junior VA scientists; collaborate with clinician investigators; function as a resource for the research community; and serve on VA research and other committees.

METHODS:
My main research interests comprise three overarching areas of research that have significant implications for the VA: 1) understanding the health and economic impacts of programs and policies on veterans with obesity or chronic conditions; 2) models of care that improve health care and health outcomes of veterans with multiple chronic conditions and 3) methods to estimate causal effects in quasi-experimental studies. In conducting program evaluation using quasi-experimental study designs around the first two areas, it is necessary to remain current on causal effect methods.Outcomes of my research include clinical parameters (e.g., survival, weight change), medication use (e.g., adherence, discontinuation), and health services utilization and expenditures. I am also the Director of the Health Economics and Policy Unit in the Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care at the Durham COIN where I facilitate coordination of economic evaluations for our Center.

FINDINGS/RESULTS:
Not yet available.

IMPACT:
Our previous studies have made both methodological and substantive contributions to health economics, health services research and clinical epidemiology, particularly with respect to developing the evidence base for bariatric surgery and management of Veterans with chronic conditions. The findings from our ongoing studies are intended to provide VA policy makers with evidence about the effectiveness of interventions designed to improve outcomes for obese veterans and veterans with chronic conditions.
