Research Interests

Dr. Snyder’s research interests are focused on improving the value of healthcare and health-related spending by measuring effectiveness and cost-related outcomes. Identifying and implementing cost-effective interventions improve health outcomes through efficient use of resources, including reducing unnecessary, inappropriate and excessively costly care. Scientifically sound research that transparently evaluates prevention, healthcare services, technology, quality improvement efforts, organizational processes, and financing strategies is needed to inform decision making. Geisinger offers a unique integrated health system environment for conducting research using multi-disciplinary teams, state-of-the-art information technology and data, opportunities to coordinate healthcare and reimbursement, and a highly innovative culture focused on providing the best patient care. Dr. Snyder's research focus areas include population health and personalized/precision medicine and risk stratification applications in genomics, disease prevention and cancer.
