ICRE Alum Dr. Thomas R. Radomski Receives K23 Award

Thomas R. Radomski, MD, MS, alumnus of the ICRE’s KL2 and MS in Clinical Research programs, recently received a Mentored Patient-Oriented Career Development Award (K23) from the National Institute on Aging. Dr. Radomski and his collaborators will develop, validate, and apply a metric that will characterize specific low-value prescribing (LVP) practices using administrative data and will reflect the perspectives of patients, prescribers, and payers as they relate to healthcare value. This study will provide key evidence regarding the prevalence of, factors associated with, and providers’ incentives to engage in LVP, which will empower healthcare providers, payers, and policy makers to study and reduce LVP in a way that is clinically sound and acceptable to patients.

Dr. Radomski’s primary mentor is Walid Gellad, MD, MPH, and his local collaborators include Megan Hamm, PhD, Scott Rothenberger, PhD, Gary Fischer, MD, and Julia Driessen, PhD. He will also be collaborating with the RAND-University of Pittsburgh Health Institute (RUPHI).The award provides $942,074 in funding from 2019 to 2024.

Congratulations to Dr. Radomski on this outstanding achievement!
