Thomas Duffy is an expert in survey research who designs and manages large-scale research and evaluation projects for federal, state, and local government agencies. Many of his projects involve public health surveillance, including health risk behavior, health insurance status and access to health care. He is skilled in multimode surveys, adaptive design elements, and other techniques that enable our surveys to reach large populations and achieve high response rates despite changes in demographics and technology.

Mr. Duffy is a leader in several of our current projects for state governments. We are conducting state-of-the-art surveys on the expansion and use of Medicaid in Ohio, generating important data for state legislators, public health administrators, and other stakeholders in the state’s health care reform efforts. Mr. Duffy also serves as senior project director of the Kansas and Missouri Healthcare Survey, a foundation-sponsored assessment of safety-net health services for residents of the two states.

Mr. Duffy joined RTI in 2011. Previously, he was vice president and managing director at ICF MACRO.
