Alyssa Crawford’s research focuses on health care quality measure development, policy analysis, and program support. She has expertise with electronic health records-based and provider-level measures and has examined issues related to child health, public health, population health, and data needs of health centers.
Crawford helps lead a project funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to develop, electronically specify, test, and maintain clinical quality measures using electronic health records. She also contributes to analytic and technical assistance projects in child health, health policy, and science and data policy. Some of her previous work includes helping to develop quality-of-care performance measures for inpatient psychiatric facilities and assisting with learning collaboratives comprised of state and federal representatives to support integrated and high-performing Medicaid and state health insurance exchange systems.
Crawford, who joined Mathematica in 2011, holds an M.S.P.H. from the Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and is certified in public health by the National Board of Public Health Examiners.
