Sarah Matousek joined Day Health Strategies (DHS) in late 2014, where she contributes to strategic planning/implementation, change management, health reform, quantitative and qualitative research, operations, and program development.
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 studied health policy and management at the Boston University School of Public Health. While there, she collaborated with a team at Harvard Medical School to develop and implement a mobile phone solutions program for surgical patients in rural Haiti. She also bolstered her skills and knowledge in quantitative and qualitative research, operations, strategic management, data analytics, and human resources.
Since joining Day Health Strategies, Sarah helped developed the MOSAIC Maturity ModelTM to evaluate both general and industry-specific organizational capabilities, across public agencies, value-based healthcare systems, and insurance exchanges. Sarah recently aided the submission of a State Innovation Model grant, implemented weekly dashboard reporting for the executive team at a state health insurance exchange, and conducted a detailed analysis and recommendations for an incoming secretary of EOHHS.
Sarah has recently led the planning and implementation effort for a large Model A MassHealth ACO, redesigned care management for a major provider network, and evaluated primary care/behavioral health integration efforts for a public agency in Massachusetts. Other client work includes supporting strategic planning and using a change management framework to help implement a large-scale transformation at a provider organization.
Sarah holds an adjunct faculty position at Boston University’s Metropolitan College teaching Introduction to the US Healthcare System for Health Communicators. She also recently accepted an affiliate faculty position with Atul Gawande’s Ariadne Labs. She holds a PhD in Neurobiology & Anatomy from the University of Rochester and a MPH in Health Policy & Management from Boston University.
