    Collapse overview
    Prachi Sanghavi is a health policy researcher who uses empirical methods to study comparative effectiveness of health care services, quality of care measurement, and population health. Her current projects include assessment of: (1) the effect of ambulance type, transport distance, and hospital quality on outcomes after out-of-hospital medical emergencies, (2) nursing home-reported data for patient safety and quality of care measurement, (3) the association between physician provision of low-value care and their patients' reported experiences, and (4) the health effects of hydraulic fracturing for natural oil and gas.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
