David D. Kim

Assistant Professor
Department of Medicine and the College

David D. Kim is a health economist whose research aims to inform prioritizing limited health care resources to improve population health and reduce health disparities. Specifically, his research has been focused on measuring the long-term value of health interventions through simulation modeling and cost-effectiveness analysis. Also, he has examined the source of health care inefficiency through measuring the use and consequences of low-value care. To guide decision making with cost-effectiveness evidence, he developed a formal quality assessment tool—Criteria for Health Economic Quality Evaluation (CHEQUE)—for evaluating the methodological and reporting quality of cost-effectiveness evidence and a decision framework and checklist for assessing transferability of economic evaluations.

His scholarly work has been published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Annals of Internal Medicine, Health Affairs, Health Economics, Journal of General Internal Medicine, Medical Decision Making, and Value in Health.

Kim earned a BSE in biomedical engineering and an MS in biostatistics from the University of Michigan. He received a PhD in health services research (health economics) from the University of Washington. Most recently, he served as an assistant professor and the program director of the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis Registry at the Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health (CEVR) at Tufts Medical Center.
