Vadim Dukhanin, MD, MHS. Dr. Dukhanin is a Research Associate in the Department of Health Policy and Management of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with more than 7 years of experience of research and consulting in academic, governmental, and corporate projects. Having a clinical background, Dr. Dukhanin has reformed to specialize in health services and health outcomes research working with clinical, medical claims, underwriting, and population health data. A dozen of projects in his portfolio includes those aimed to enhance provider payment models (CMS CPC+) and to evaluate aspects of the Medicare Shared Savings ACOs program and the AHRQ Primary Care Medical Home model. His current project aims to evaluate implementation and efficiency of asymmetric performance-based adjustments in the CMS Primary Care First (PCF) model, with the focus on seriously ill patient populations. Dr. Dukhanin has been involved in grant proposals seeking to evaluate CMS Beneficiary Engagement and Incentives (BEI) Model and Maryland’s Total Cost of Care (TCOC) and Primary Care Program (MDPCP).

Vadim's project portfolio demonstrates my extensive skills in complex data analysis, synthesis, and presentation. He has conducted over a dozen of systematic reviews and scoping literature reviews of studies with diverse subjects and design complexity. Vadim uses quantitative methods to analyze health economics models, cost-effectiveness and cost utility studies, decision tree and Markov analyses, and patient-reported outcomes primary and secondary data. His work equally employs qualitative methods to analyze surveys and focus group and individual expert interviews. Vadim synthesized findings in over a dozen of executive summaries, reports, and scholarly manuscripts and have presented them to various stakeholders.

Vadim has been successfully managing multidisciplinary projects, including project management, proactive time management of the deliverables, team coordination, and supervision of research assistants. He prepares annual and milestone progress and impact reports. Vadim co-designs and conducts programs process and outcome evaluations. He is responsible for the Center’s communications, including active identification and dissemination of relevant funding opportunities. His tasks include preparation of contract and grant submissions and formulating scopes of work.

Vadim's research interests include identifying optimal implementation and evaluation methods of translating desired organizational priorities, for instance value-based care, into individuals’ performance and professionals’ behaviors. His special interest in priority-setting concerns patient experience and health care quality and safety, and the alignment of these priorities with patient and public engagement activities. In terms of healthcare practice improvement, Vadim has a passion for exploring the role of payment and performance systems and the use of human resource management policies and other organizational elements, such as organizational culture, in shaping health professionals’ behavior.
