Research Analytic Support

The Health Economics Data Analyst Pool (HEDAP) is a Penn service center supported and managed by LDI to provide LDI-affiliated investigators access to high-quality, skilled data analysts. HEDAP administrative staff recruits, trains, and manages a group of Master's-level and PhD-level statistical analysts. These analysts work with multi-disciplinary investigators across funded projects using statistical software packages such as SAS, Stata, and R to manipulate and analyze health care data under the guidance of the investigators and other collaborators. HEDAP administration supports the professional development of the analysts, facilitates the effort of visa applications if applicable, and provides state-of-the-art computer equipment and programming software required to conduct health services research. To help manage HEDAP, LDI-affiliated investigators are charged a 15% overhead fee.

Peter Groeneveld, MD, MS runs the HEDAP program, and Jibby Kurichi, MPH manages the day-to-day operations. For more information regarding HEDAP or to view the analyst request queue, please contact Jibby Kurichi.
