Configurational Comparative Methods in Implementation Science: A New Mathematical Approach for Cross-Case Analysis

May 11


This event is hosted by the Global Center for Implementation Science and the Biostatistics Department.

Edward Miech, EdD is an Assistant Professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine as well as a Research Scientist at the Regenstrief Institute and a Core Investigator at the HSR&D Center for Health Information and Communication at the Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis.  He also serves as a member of the Implementation Core for the Expanding Expertise Through E-health Network Development (EXTEND) QUERI. He has over a decade of experience in health services research and implementation science. Over the past four years, he has applied Configurational Comparative Methods (CCMs), especially Coincidence Analysis (CNA), to mixed-methods evaluations of facility-level interventions, serving as the dedicated CCMs analyst on multiple VA and non-VA projects. He has given national presentations on CCMs at major conferences (AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting, Science of D&I Conference, etc.) and has published studies applying CCMs to health services research in medical journals including Medical Care, The Gerontologist, JGIM, and Implementation Science.  He helped organize 5-day workshops on CCMs hosted by Regenstrief in 2017 and 2020, and is the founder of “All Things Configured,” a national community of practice focused on the application of CCMs in health services research.
