Bruce Kinosian, MD, is a general internist/geriatrician with involvement among a broad group of researchers. He has produced influential cost-effectiveness analyses of interventions for cardiovascular disease in work spanning a decade; developed sophisticated, pioneering models for Alzheimer's disease using Grade of Membership techniques; and has been involved in economic evaluations of a range of clinical trials funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and its research arm, Health Services Research & Development (HSRD). He is currently principal investigator of a three-year project to produce a new long-term care planning model for the VA, an integrating endeavor that ties together data from the VA and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) with national surveys spanning the past 20 years, as well as linking HSRD with VA's policy arm (Assistant Deputy Under-Secretary of Health's Office of Policy and Planning). For the past decade he has focused on clinical demonstration projects for community-based long-term care, exploring forms of "all-inclusive care" outside of the PACE model.
Dr. Kinosian previously was assistant professor of medicine at the University of Maryland. He received his BA degree in economics from Stanford University and his medical degree from the University of California at San Francisco.
