Ateev-MehrotraDr. Mehrotra’s research focuses on interventions to decrease costs and improve quality of care. Much of his work has focused on innovations in delivery such as retail clinics and e-visits and their impact on quality, costs and access to health care. He is also interested in the role of consumerism and whether price transparency and public reporting of quality can impact patient decision making. Related work has focused on quality measurement, including how natural language processing can be used to analyze the data in electronic health records to measure the quality of care.

Dr. Mehrotra received his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco, and his residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Boston. His clinical work includes both primary care physician and an adult and pediatric hospitalist. He also has received formal research training with a Master of Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master of Science in Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health.

In 2008, Dr. Mehrotra received the Milton W. Hamolsky Award for Outstanding Scientific Presentation by a Junior Faculty Member by the Society of General Internal Medicine. In 2013, he received the Alice S. Hersh New Investigator Award from AcademyHealth for health services researchers early in their careers who show exceptional promise.
