Research Interests

John Bian’s main research interests are to understand determinants of changes in health care delivery system and the impact of the changes on health care quality and outcomes. Funded by a four-year VA HSR&D Merit Award, he and his colleagues published two studies analyzing VA system-wide performance in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening adherence. One study presented an improved claims-data-based algorithm for constructing patient-level panel data measuring CRC screening adherence; the other study used this algorithm to assess the impact of a VA CRC screening clinical reminder on CRC screening adherence.
