Sarah Matousek joined Day Health Strategies (DHS) in late 2014 where she has led the development and launch of a private exchange advisory service, building on DHS’s expertise in health insurance exchanges. She has also developed a maturity model to evaluate the capabilities of health insurance exchanges - she is currently using this to aid with sustainability planning for a public exchange. Other client work includes supporting strategic planning and using a change management framework to help implement a large-scale transformation at a provider organization.
After spending eight years in academia researching Alzheimer’s disease in Rochester, NY and then at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Sarah spent three years studying health policy and management at the Boston University School of Public Health. While there, she helped teach courses on the US healthcare system in the context of current health reform issues. During this time, she was involved in program development for a mobile phone solutions project for surgical patients in rural Haiti, data analysis for a federal re-admission reductions program, and strategic planning for the Commonwealth Care Alliance. These experiences bolstered her skills and knowledge in quantitative and qualitative research, operations, strategic management, data analytics, and human resources.
Sarah recently accepted an adjunct faculty position at Boston University’s Metropolitan College teaching Introduction to the US Healthcare System for Health Communicators. She holds a PhD in Neurobiology & Anatomy from the University of Rochester and a MPH in Health Policy & Management from Boston University.
