Working with Partnership for Prevention, Dr. Maciosek has led the development and implementation of methods to evaluate the relative value of evidence-based clinical preventive services. In 2006, this project published its revised ratings of the relative priorities for 25 clinical preventive services recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Dr. Maciosek conducted the cost-effectiveness analyses on most of these services and led the scientific team that conducted all analyses. Recently, his team began assessing the value of evidence-based community preventive services such as creating places for physical activity, increasing tobacco taxes and enhanced enforcement of laws to promote seatbelt use or to decrease sales of alcohol to minors. Although focused on prevention, Dr. Maciosek also engages in selected research on the economics of disease management and treatment.
