As director of PolicyLab at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a professor of pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Rubin is responsible for a center of emphasis that includes 35 faculty and instructors and more than 60 staff conducting population health and community-partnered research. With a content focus on developing health system and public program innovation to meet the needs of high-risk children, he also serves as director of Population Health Innovation at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, supervising a team that develops and implements integrated solutions using clinical care and technology to more proactively identify and provide needed services to at-risk patients across primary and subspecialty care settings.

To date, he has authored more than 120 manuscripts spanning peer-reviewed research, policy analyses, and edited chapters in prominent pediatric texts, including seminal manuscripts in JAMAHealth Affairs and Pediatrics on quality of health care coverage and access for children in low-income families and the delivery system interventions that can return value for public health programs. He is particularly drawn to the challenges of meeting the needs of patients receiving publicly funded health insurance through programs like Medicaid and CHIP. 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 health policy decisions on behalf of children across the country.
