Luke Horvath, Research Economist
Luke Horvath is a research economist at RTI Health Advance

Luke has 7 years of experience implementing and rigorously analyzing the impacts of healthcare and anti-poverty programs. His primary expertise lies in designing experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations of programs that address multiple social and environmental obstacles to patient health. He has extensive experience merging data from multiple sources including raw claims, area-level social determinants of health (SDoH) indices, and demographic information to provide a well-rounded representation of program impact.

Luke’s current work includes researching and implementing shared savings models with the federal government and commercial payers. He also analyzes the impact of interventions on total cost of care and healthcare quality and is particularly excited about opportunities to research programs designed to reduce health equity gaps and expand value-based care.

Prior to joining RTI Health Advance in 2019 Luke was a consultant at Deloitte Consulting where he worked as a data scientist building predictive models for behavioral science projects. He has also worked at the Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO), a research center at the University of Notre Dame which helps service providers apply scientific evaluation methods to better understand and scale effective poverty interventions.

Luke holds an MPP with a Data Analytics Specialization from Duke University. He also graduated magna com laude from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in Economics and a minor in Applied Mathematics.
