Judy has over 30 years of experience in the rigorous analysis of data in a wide range of contexts and in computer programming to support that analysis. Her work with research centers and national firms – in education policy, direct marketing, and health care – includes statistical analysis and modeling, report development, and decision support system design and maintenance. She has designed, built, and managed systems to report provider quality and efficiency, implemented a complex algorithm for assigning standard prices to medical claims, and assessed market position for a large health care insurer. Over the years she has developed deep expertise in all-payer claim databases, risk adjusters, and measures such as Health Partners’ Total Cost of Care and Resource Use.
A nationally-recognized expert in SAS and frequent speaker and section chair for SAS User Group conferences at the local, regional, and national levels, Judy has authored numerous papers on clear and efficient techniques for harvesting and integrating data from disparate sources. Over her career she has led a wide range of analytical projects, focusing on using information to drive good business decisions. She has a particular interest in determining the analytic approach and interpretation of results based on a clear understanding of the sources of data.
Judy holds an A.B. in psychology, with a concentration in statistics, from Dartmouth College. She graduated summa cum laude with high distinction in her major and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
