Samuel (Sam) T. Savitz, Ph.D., is a health services researcher who analyzes factors related to undertreatment and overtreatment of health conditions and how care for individual patients can be optimized. Dr. Savitz primarily uses administrative claims data and electronic health records to evaluate interventional and noninterventional therapies to address chronic conditions. In particular, he is focused on improving care for patients with cardiovascular disease, including ischemic heart disease and heart failure.
Dr. Savitz's research identifies factors that prevent patients from receiving the appropriate level of care and addresses gaps in the understanding of which patients are most likely to benefit from treatment. The results of his research have implications on how to optimize care for patients given their individual characteristics and treatment preferences.
