Prachi Sanghavi, PhD

Prachi Sanghavi is a health policy researcher who uses empirical methods to study comparative effectiveness of health care services, quality of care measurement, and population health. Her current projects include assessment of: (1) the effect of ambulance type, transport distance, and hospital quality on outcomes after out-of-hospital medical emergencies, (2) nursing home-reported data for patient safety and quality of care measurement, (3) the association between physician provision of low-value care and their patients' reported experiences, and (4) the health effects of hydraulic fracturing for natural oil and gas.
