About Ella

Sheinfeld's research focuses on health policy, specifically the development of outcome measures to quantify quality, value, and equity in health care and the effects of policies and regulations on health care costs in the United States.

Currently, Sheinfeld works at Yale Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy, and Effectiveness Research Center. She is conducting a population-based study in order to generate and disseminate new information that can improve the care and outcomes of patients with cancer. She also works as a research assistant at Yale School of Management. Using her training in demographic modeling from her undergraduate studies in Sociology, she works on a model of the demographic and denominational makeup of the U.S. Jewish community and its evolution over time to identify potential policy intervention targets.
