Madhu Mazumdar, PhD
- DIRECTOR, INSTITUTE FOR HEALTH CARE DELIVERY SCIENCE
- PROFESSOR | Population Health Science and Policy
Dr. Mazumdar developed methodologies for detecting publication bias in meta-analysis; for adjusting selection bias in clinical trials; for allowing interim looks at data in clinical trials comparing diagnostic tests; for developing and validating quality of life questionnaire; and for estimating misclassification rate of responders when oncologic response criteria were changed. Her collaborative research resulted in personalized treatment regimen for various cancer types and orthopedic surgeries. Her work also changed guidelines for staging cancer and practice guidelines for use of anesthetics. She developed innovative interdisciplinary educational and research programs, in collaboration with various clinical departments that increased productivity through grantsmanship and augmented clinical revenue through improved care delivery. Working within inter-disciplinary teams, she has trained more than 50 biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and clinical researchers, many of whom are leading quantitative science units today.

- Overuse of Diagnostic Imaging at a Large Urban Hospital: A Retrospective Analysis
This retrospective study aims to provide guidance on the use of diagnostic imaging and the effectiveness of ACRSelect on reducing inappropriate use. It will do so by evaluating the objectives in the inpatient/Emergency Department (ED) setting and the ambulatory setting s...
- Overuse of Diagnostic Imaging at a Large Urban Hospital System: A Randomized Control Trial
The overall goal of this research is to reduce physician rates of inappropriate diagnostic imaging. To do this, we will study a decision support tool embedded in the order-entry system. Physicians will be randomized into two arms: those who see the ACRSelect screen upon orderi...
- Effect of Formulary Restrictions on IV Acetaminophen Utilization at Mount Sinai Hospital
The purpose of this study is to compare weekly and monthly utilization of numbers of IV APAP (acetaminophen) vials ordered before, during, and after the implementation of formulary restrictions at Mount Sinai Hospital. The weekly and monthly order count...
- Perioperative Management in Hepatic Resection: Comparative Effectiveness and Disparity Research
Perioperative complication rates after hepatic resection for primary and metastatic liver cancer are high (~20%), and are potentially mediated by perioperative interventions (e.g. type of anesthesia, method of fluid resuscitation, and type of pharmacologic intervention). Dispa...
- Use of Premier Perspective Database in Comparative Effectiveness Research
These studies are important because different treatments lead to varying patterns of complication and length of stay at hospital. All of these have consequences in patient care decision making and economic impacts to the person and the society. Claims-based data add additional...
- The Validity of Claims Data on the Use of Opioids
In this study we aim to assess the validity of one frequently used category of medications, opioids used as postoperative pain treatment, in a group of patients undergoing their surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital. We will compare data from Premier Perspective, a claims based data...
