Greg Rhee, PhD, MSW, is a health services researcher, who specializes in population-based clinical outcomes research and health care policy. His research interests consist of: (1) psychiatric epidemiology of behavioral health, focused particularly on late-life depression and opioid use disorder; (2) pharmaco-epidemiology and drug-related health services research; and (3) social gerontology. Methodologically, his expertise is grounded in population-based observational studies using large databases. In particular, he has experience using national health and healthcare survey data (e.g., HRS, NAMCS/NHAMCS, NSDUH, and NHIS), and also has experience with federal or state administrative claims data (e.g., Medicare and Medicaid).
He has more than 40 peer-reviewed research articles in notable medical and health care policy journals, such as JAMA Internal Medicine, Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Addiction, and Health Services Research. In addition, he has been a successful collaborator or co-investigator on multiple research projects funded by major federal agencies, including Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and National Institutes of Health (NIH). He is an alumnus of the University of Chicago and Yale University.
