Pragya Singh is a health researcher with expertise in economic modeling, experimental and quasi-experimental designs, health policy analysis, and evaluations of Medicare expenditure and utilization outcomes.
Singh is currently a task leader and researcher for the Evaluation of the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) model, a large mixed-methods evaluation that provides ongoing rapid-cycle feedback about the implementation and impacts of CPC+ to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and other participating payers, practices, and stakeholders to promote learning and ongoing improvements. In her role, she leads the claims-based impact analysis to examine the effects of CPC+ on Medicare expenditures, service use, and quality of care. Among her other projects, she is conducting research on the lifetime projected durations and benefit amounts of new Supplemental Security Income child awardees for the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics. This project, led by the University of New Hampshire, is a collaborative effort with the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research to develop a research and training center to disseminate statistics on people with disabilities.
She is also experienced in producing quality measures for performance assessment in value-based purchasing programs. She led the production of the 30-day All Cause Readmission measure for the Value-Based Payment Modifier program and the independent verification and validation of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System production contractor’s calculations for this measure.
Before joining Mathematica in 2016, Singh held positions at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Indian Statistical Institute. She has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
