Niko joined Day Health Strategies (DHS) in April 2017, bringing a broad range of experience and skills ranging from predictive analytics to database design, building and maintenance, to strategy implementation. He developed an analytical methodology for DHS’s organizational maturity model and built a toolkit of best practices for state-based exchanges to increase enrollment, particularly in rural areas.
Prior to this position, Niko worked on an FDA-sponsored initiative run by Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Institute and the Harvard Medical School to conduct postmarket safety assessments of drugs and biologics by analyzing over 350 million person-years of payor claims data provided by partner organizations. Other research experience includes working on NIH-funded research studies determining risk factors for adverse birth outcomes, examining demographic characteristics of subjects enrolled in clinical trials examining Type II Diabetes, and analyzing publication outcomes for peer-reviewed articles. During the 2012 election cycle, he worked on a congressional campaign as the field organizer for the city of Nashua.
Niko graduated from Boston University’s MBA/MPH dual-degree program in 2017. He served on the leadership teams of the Consulting Club as well as the Global Ventures Consulting Club, for which he conceived of, organized and led a pilot expedition to Cuba to learn about their healthcare system. He interned at a Boston-based independent practice association overseeing 90 primary care providers, where he built practice-specific financial models for a behavioral health integration initiative, designed and built a database for safety data, and helped design workflows and infrastructure for a grant-funded telepsychiatry program. Niko attended Colby College where he studied political science and psychology, played rugby, and tutored other students in the Writers’ Center.
