Dr. Davis’ research focuses on leveraging large sources of data to study important health policy-relevant issues, with a particular interest applying data mining methods to healthcare claims data. More specifically, he has studied the national use of health services over time for nonspecific back pain, and has been involved in the development of methods to use social media data to measure social support and public opinion. His current work is investigating health service substitution for nonspecific back pain by conducting a natural experiment of Medicare patients.
