Jason Falvey is a post-doctoral fellow at Yale University. His research training focuses on disability and recovery for older adults after acute hospitalization, and how physical function contributes to hospital readmission risk. He received his PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus in 2018. He previously received a dual BS and DPT from Husson University in Bangor, Maine.
Jason is particularly interested in how rehabilitation utilization after an acute hospitalization impacts trajectories of functional recovery, risk for readmission, and downstream health care utilization. He also has worked with long-term care providers to evaluate optimal measurement of physical function, and relationships between function and hospital utilization. Prior to his matriculation in the PhD program, Jason obtained his board certification in geriatric physical therapy in 2013 and worked as a home health therapist and rehabilitation director of a home health agency in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Jason maintains an active social media presence on Twitter (@JRayFalvey) and is a frequent podcast guest for topics related to geriatrics and health care policy.
