Population Data & Modeling Core

The Population Data & Modeling Core, located at Boston Medical Center/Boston University School of Public Health and Weill Cornell Medicine, combines both clinical and methodological expertise. The Core promotes the use of population data from linked administrative and clinical records in conducting community-level economic evaluations of treatment and care for substance use disorder, and HCV and HIV among people who use substances. The Core also advances the application of simulation modeling methods to evaluations of the economic and population outcomes of substance use disorder, HCV, and HIV treatment for people who use substances.
