Dr. Rubin is an emerging leader in developing health system and public program innovation to meet the needs of high-risk populations of children. At Children's Hospital, he serves as the medical director of population health and is working across the health system to build capabilities for population health management and aligning delivery system reforms to improve the value and quality of care patients receive. He is an active pediatric/primary care clinician, educator, and mentor for fellows and junior faculty interested in children's health policy and public health, as well as a skilled investigator in Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
Dr. Rubin has authored more than 80 manuscripts spanning peer-reviewed research, policy analyses, and edited chapters in prominent pediatric texts, including seminal manuscripts in Health Affairs, JAMA, and Pediatrics on quality of health coverage and access for children in low-income families, prevention strategies and subsequent care of children who are at risk for child abuse, and program design and outcomes for children in foster care. He is particularly drawn to the challenges of meeting the needs of some of our nation's highest risk children in the nation's Medicaid and CHIP programs. He has made numerous presentations to the medical profession and to city, state, and national leaders, including the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, to guide evidence-informed policy decision on behalf of children across the country.
