Sean D. Candrilli, PhD, is a Global Head of Health Economics at RTI-HS. During his tenure at RTI-HS, Dr. Candrilli has worked extensively in the area of data management and analyses of clinical trial and commercially available and public use databases, as well as with data drawn from medical records (i.e., retrospective medical record abstractions). His academic background is heavily grounded in applied economics and econometrics, particularly as related to public health topics, and he has extensive experience in all aspects of retrospective health care claims database analyses, cross-sectional and longitudinal survey analyses, econometric modeling, and data management using a variety of statistical packages, including SAS, SUDAAN, and Stata. Dr. Candrilli has conducted research to estimate the economic burden in various disease areas, including oncology. He has also conducted research to characterize cancer-related treatment patterns using retrospective medical record abstraction techniques. Additionally, Dr. Candrilli has analyzed numerous survey databases (including the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the National Ambulatory Medical Survey, the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Survey, the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, and the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project family of databases) to estimate the prevalence of various medical conditions and their associated economic burden.
