Changing Health Care Through Data

With the recent digitalization of health data, there has been a high demand for data scientists who are able to extract value out of health data.  Come and learn about Center for Health Systems Innovation, and our efforts to innovate and transform rural and Native American health care through the implementation of innovative care delivery models and IT tools and solutions.  We will discuss about the driving forces in the market, how we are structured to meet those needs as an innovation center, and also go over a small sampling of analytics and health care delivery projects.  Come and learn more about how to get involved with us!

The Effects of Spending on Test Pass Rates Revisited: A Spatial Statistics Approach

Abstract:

In 1994, Michigan initiated a school finance reform which is called Proposal A, aimed at equalization of school finances among school districts; many researches have been done for it is impacts, either on student performance, like Papke (2005, 2008), Pake and Wooldridge (2008); or on the socioeconomic segregation across school districts, like Chakrabarti and Roy (2012). However, none of them accounts for the spatial dependence among school districts. In this paper, we adopt a logit model with spatial effects to analyze the MEAP data of Michigan in 2009/2010 school year; the Hierarchical Bayesian technique is proposed for the parameter estimation. This also gives a solution to the question raised in Papke and Wooldridge (1996).
