Jack Homer is an expert in system dynamics simulation modeling, a former faculty member at the University of Southern California, and a full-time consultant to private and public organizations since 1989. His articles on modeling applications and methodology are frequently cited, and many are published in the books, “Models That Matter” (2012) and “More Models That Matter” (2017). In the health sector, he has done modeling projects for federal agencies including CDC, NIH, CMS, FDA, and VHA, and for several foundations, think tanks, and state and county health departments. He has developed models for the Rippel Foundation’s ReThink Health initiative since its inception in 2011. He is the recipient of several awards from the International System Dynamics Society, the CDC, AcademyHealth, and the Applied Systems Thinking Institute. Dr. Homer has a PhD from MIT, where he studied system dynamics and economics and wrote his dissertation on the adoption and evolution of new medical technologies.
