CHPAMS Announcement

  1. 2018 CHPAMS RISING SCHOLAR BEST PAPER AWARD

In 2016, CHPAMS established the Rising Scholar Best Paper Award to recognize outstanding peer review publications authored by CHPAMS members who are in their early career.  For the 2018 Award, we received an unprecedented number of high-quality publications. A seven-member Award Committee completed two rounds of thorough and independent review of the applications and selected two papers as the winners.  We are delighted to announce the following two papers and their lead authors as the recipients of the 2018 CHPAMS Best Paper Award!

Dr. Donglang Zhang, et al. “Expansion of Telestroke Services Improves Quality of Care Provided in Super Rural Areas” Health Affair. 2018 Dec;37(12):2005-2013

Donglan Zhang.JPG

This paper presents trends in utilization of a two-way video conferencing telemedicine technology – telestroke – that connects large stroke centers and lower-resourced facilities to optimize acute stroke management in the U.S., and assesses the association between providing telestroke services and quality of care and medical expenditures, by urban versus rural county of residence among fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries. The study finds that telestroke services have increased rapidly during the period from 2008 to 2015, with usage highest among patients in rural or super rural areas. Telestroke services improved quality of care and clinical outcomes, especially in super rural counties. The findings have important implications for policy dialogue aimed at reducing health disparities between rural and urban regions through expanding and reimbursing telemedicine technologies and services. Such evidence is also important and relevant to China’s health policy as China embraces emerging technologies in transforming its health delivery system to improve quality of care and reduce health disparities.

The paper’s lead author, Dr. Donglan Zhang, is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Health Policy and Management, College of Public Health, University of Georgia (UGA).  She is also adjunct faculty at Shanghai Children’s Medical Center, affiliated with Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine. Before joining the faculty at UGA, she worked as a prevention effectiveness fellow at U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She received her PhD in Health Policy and Management from the University of California at Los Angeles in 2014. Dr. Zhang’s research has been focusing on insurance coverage and access to care and prevention of chronic diseases from a system perspective in the US and China.

Dr. Jing Li, “Plastic surgery or primary care? Altruistic preferences and expected specialty choice of U.S. medical students” J Health Econ. 2018 Nov;62:45-59

Jing Li.jpg

This paper is the first that rigorously measures altruism of U.S. medical professionals and uses it to predict career choice. The paper used a cutting-edge methodology developed in experimental economics to measure altruism among over 500 medical students recruited from schools around the U.S.  The paper finds that medical students with a lower degree of altruism are significantly more likely to choose high-income specialties and also significantly predicts students' self-reported likelihood of practicing medicine in an underserved area. This altruism measure is more predictive of specialty than other characteristics, including parental income, student loan amount and Medical College Admission Test score. This paper demonstrates that laboratory measure of altruism can predict important real-world decisions of medical professionals, and highlights the need to enhance altruism level and potentially change the specialty distribution among future physicians. The tool for measuring altruism preferences can be adapted for use in different languages and countries, including China.

The paper’s sole author, Dr. Jing Li, is an Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Economics in the Department of Healthcare Policy and Research at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Li obtained her PhD in Health Policy and MA in Economics from University of California, Berkeley. She also holds an MA in International Comparative Education from Stanford University and a BA in Economics & English from Peking University. Dr Li’s research focuses on examining the incentives and behaviors of healthcare providers, as well as their impact on healthcare resource allocation, especially in situations involving conflicts of interests between providers and patients.

  1. 2018 CHPAMS INSPIRATION AWARD

It is with our greatest honor to announce the winner of CHPAMS’s 2018 Inspiration Award, Dr. Yaojiang Shi. CHPAMS established the Inspiration Award in August 2016 to recognize members’ extraordinary determination to challenge the “status quo”, overcome significant barriers and achieve accomplishments in scientific research, community service, or innovative activities that are above and beyond the expectation. The Inspiration Award was exclusively funded through member donations. In January 2019, CHPAMS started the nomination process and formed a five-member Award Committee that was made up of CHPAMS President Dr. Xi Chen and four distinguished researchers as below.

  • Teh-Wei Hu,      PhD, Professor Emeritus of Health Economics, University of California,      Berkeley School of Public Health

  • Gordon Liu, PhD,      Yangtze River Scholar Professor of Economics, Director of China Center for      Health Economics Research, Peking University National School of      Development

  • Winnie Yip,      PhD, Professor of the Practice of International Health Policy and      Economics, Department of Global Health and Population, Harvard T. Chan      School of Public Health

  • Hai Yu, MD,      PhD, Professor, Director of International Education Program and Director      of Center of Distance Education, Zhejiang University School of Medicine

We received three highly quality nominations. All the individuals and team members being nominated have exemplified perseverance, dedication, and leadership in their impressive achievements and accomplishments.  After independent assessments, the Award Committee selected Dr. Yaojiang Shi as the winner of the 2018 CHPAMS Inspiration Award.

Prof. Shi is a visionary and persistent researcher who has made significant contributions to health and welfare of low-income children, especially in Northwest China. He achieved a distinct but successful research career path by giving up opportunities in business and public service. More than three decades ago, he started collaborations with eminent American researchers, including Dr. Scott Rozelle, while the region was still experiencing extreme poverty and short of any research resources at that time.  With his leadership, he has built an active research center almost from the scratch and overcome significant challenges in government support, research resources, and team building to implement series of large randomized controlled trials to improve health and welfare of the vulnerable children in China. He has demonstrated high academic integrity and was respected by peers and junior researchers as the role model. His vision, courage, and persistence in research makes him highly qualified for this award.

Congratulations to Dr. Yaojiang Shi!

  1. 2018 CHPAMS VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD

Each year, we grant Volunteer of the Year Award to a volunteer for his/her significant contributions to the organization. For 2018, we are delighted to announce the winner of CHPAMS Volunteer of the Year Award, Dr. Mengxi Zhang.

DrMengxiZhang.png

CHPAMS Announcements

  1. Greetings for the 10th Birthday of CHPAMS (From Dr. Sten Vermund)

“The 2018 conference is being held here. The Yale-China Association is 120 years old. Yale has had a working relationship in China that’s quite sustained and quite substantial. So we think it’s quite appropriate that you will choose our university as the American venue for this conference. We welcome all delegates from United States, from China and from the rest of the world to jointhis valuable conference with over 140 talks in the next two days. Welcome to New Haven!”

DrStenVermund.jpg

Dr. Sten Vermund is a pediatrician and infectious disease epidemiologist focused on diseases of low and middle income countries. His work on HIV-HPV interactions among women in Bronx methadone programs motivated a change in the 1993 CDC AIDS case surveillance definition and inspired cervical cancer screening programs launched within HIV/AIDS programs around the world. The thrust of his research has focused on health care access, adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights, and prevention of  HIV transmission among general and key populations, including mother-to-child.

2017 CHPAMS Rising Scholar Best Paper Award

It is our pleasure to announce that the 2017 Rising Scholar Best Paper Award is granted to “Tuberculosis Detection and the Challenges of Integrated Care in Rural China: A Cross-sectional Standardized Patient Study”, published by PLoS Medicine in October 2017. The authors for the winning paper are: Sean Sylvia, Hao Xue, Chengchao Zhou , Yaojiang Shi, Hongmei Yi, Huan Zhou, Scott Rozelle, Madhukar Pai, and Jishnu Das.

CHPAMS established the Rising Scholar Best Paper Award in November 2016 to recognize outstanding peer review publications authored by CHPAMS members who are in their early career stage (either current students or within five years since receiving their last academic degrees). The application for the 2017 Award was open from Oct 2017 to Dec 2017. A six-member Award Committee (see list below) completed a thorough and independent review of all applications and unanimously selected the paper by Sylvia et al. as the winner for the 2017 CHPAMS Best Paper Award.

The winning paper, “Tuberculosis Detection and the Challenges of Integrated Care in Rural China: A Cross-sectional Standardized Patient Study”, presents the results of a large-scale survey of village, township, and county-level health facilities across three provinces employing unannounced standardized patients to assess the ability of rural providers to correctly diagnose and manage a case of presumptive tuberculosis (TB). Such evidence is important given that, despite substantial progress against the disease at the national level due to improved treatment of diagnosed cases, prevalence remains high in rural areas and the large majority of TB cases are undiagnosed by the health system. The findings have important implications for recent reforms aimed at encouraging first contact with lower tier providers in the health system. Specifically, the results suggest that without improvements in the quality of primary care at lower tiers, such reforms could undermine further progress against TB in China.

Dr.SeanSylvia.jpg

The paper’s lead author, Dr. Sean Sylvia, is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Health Policy and Management, Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill. He is also a research affiliate at the Rural Education Action Program (REAP) based at Stanford University. Before moving to UNC, he spent three years as an Assistant Professor in the School of Economics at Renmin University in Beijing. He received his PhD in Agricultural and Resource Economics from the University of Maryland in 2014. Dr. Sylvia has collaborated for nearly ten years with researchers at several institutions in China on research aimed at finding policy solutions to health and education challenges in China’s rural areas. His current main area of work focuses on measuring and evaluating approaches to improve the quality of primary care, with specific focus on implications for the design of recent health reforms.

Congratulations Dr. Sean Sylvia!

In October 2017, CHPAMS started the nomination process for the 2017 Inspiration Award. A five-member Award Selection Committee was formed, made up of CHPAMS President Dr. Zhuo (Adam) Chen and four distinguished researchers. We received highly qualified nominations for the Award.  After deliberation, the Committee agreed that the nominees, although strong candidates, fell short of meeting the high expectation for the distinguished Inspiration Award. Therefore, the Committee regretfully chose not to select an awardee for the 2017 CHPAMS Inspiration Award.
