Research Interests

Dr. Hao’s research interests focus on economic evaluations of health services and programs which aim to improve patient outcomes through promoting personalized/precision healthcare. Specifically, in 3 sub-areas:

  1. Economic evaluation of genome sequencing and pharmacogenomics. Project examples include: MyCode return of results to patients and providers, Rational Integration of Clinical SEquencing (RISE), universal Lynch Syndrome screening, and HLA-B*1502 genotyping and carbamazepine induced side effects.
  2. Economic evaluation of risk-stratified disease prevention and treatment approach, e.g. cancer. Relevant projects include: new staging system of Squamous Cell Carcinomas of the Oropharynx, risk-prediction biomarker test which predicts progression risk of Barrett’s esophagus to esophageal adenocarcinoma, and new test which predicts risk of pre-eclampsia.
  3. Evaluation of clinical innovation programs focusing on medication adherence, healthcare utilization and costs.

The quantitative research methods she uses include decision analysis modeling and simulation, biostatistics and econometrics methods by utilizing electronic health records, claims data, both internal and national cost data sources and by systematic evidence synthesis.
