Thérèse Stukel

Senior Core Scientist (Full Status) ICES Central Primary Care & Health Systems Research Program


Thérèse Stukel's current research interests are the effects of health system organization and resources on the delivery of care and outcomes in Canada and the US, particularly whether higher healthcare spending is associated with better health outcomes. Her health services research focuses on cardiovascular outcomes, health human resources, and the sustainability and longitudinal efficiency of healthcare systems. She has also focused on methods for the analysis of observational studies, particularly the use of instrumental variables to remove unmeasured confounding and survival bias. She developed the boundaries of Ontario's Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) based on patterns of patient hospitalizations. With the support of a CIHR team grant, she and colleagues created Ontario multispecialty physician networks, virtual physician networks that mimic Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and is evaluating their efficiency (quality vs. costs) in managing patients with chronic disease. She has published over 180 peer-reviewed articles in medical and statistical journals. In 2007, she was nominated Fellow of the American Statistical Association.

Dr. Stukel was recently featured in International Innovation Magazine.
