Dr. Adam Carle is a clinically and quantitatively trained health services researcher at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). He is nationally recognized as an expert in patient reported outcome measurement, children with special health care needs (CHSCN), measurement, and quasi-experimental (observational) research methods. He uses structural equation models (SEM), multilevel models (MLM), and contemporary test theory (e.g., item response theory: IRT) to advance the methodological science used to measure health and health related outcomes from the family and child’s perspective, investigate the correlates of children and their families’ well-being, and investigate health disparities.
Additionally, his work seeks to better understand individual and contextual variables’ influences on health and health disparities at individual, local, system, state, and national levels.
For the PEPR consortium, Dr. Carle will be analyzing longitudinal data from CHOP's three projects. He thinks his family is amazing (including his dog).
