Abstract
Dana B. Mukamel, Ph.D. is Professor at the Department of Medicine and Senior Fellow at the Health Policy Research Institute at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). Prior to joining the University of California she was on the faculty at the University of Rochester Medical Center. She also has affiliations with the UCI Paul Merage School of Business and the program in Public Health at UCI.

Dr. Mukamel holds a Ph.D. in economics and her research focuses on issues related to quality of care in acute and long term care, both methodological issues related to measurement of quality and empirical studies designed to offer insights into policy, market, and provider characteristics that contribute to provision of high quality care. She has developed methods to measure quality in nursing homes and community based long term care programs based on risk-adjusted health outcomes, such as risk-adjusted decline in functional status and pressure ulcers. She serves on several CMS task forces that designs risk-adjusted quality measures and quality report cards. Her studies have examined the role of competition, regulation, report cards and other factors in provision of high quality care. Her extensive research program is funded by grants from federal agencies (AHRQ, NIA, NINR and the VA) and private foundations.

Dr. Mukamel has served on the editorial board of the American Journal of Public health and many national advisory and review boards for organizations such as CMS, NIH, AHRQ, VA and MedPAC. She is also editor of the Journal of Health Services Research Outcomes and Methodology.
