On this episode of Inside Health Care, we speak with Philip Saynisch, PhD, NCQA’s 2019 Phyllis Torda Health Care Quality Fellowship recipient and recent Harvard University graduate. He discusses his background, the current focus of his research and how he learned about the Phyllis Torda Health Care Quality Fellowship. Dr. Saynisch’s work aims to identify performance drivers for health care organizations and providers, and how performance can change over time.
The Phyllis Torda Health Care Quality Fellowship Program enables NCQA to train a new generation of health care quality leaders from diverse backgrounds. The Fellow works on critical issues related to health care quality, research and policy; for example, how patient-reported outcomes can improve case management, patient engagement in care and providing better information for decision making.
