Morgan Richey, PhD, MPH

Senior Population Health Analyst

An international upbringing really hammered home the reality that good health is a necessary condition to enabling people, communities, and cultures to thrive. My background in the industry informed my work in hospital epidemiology and quality improvement, where I realized how critical it is to align the needs of patients, providers, and payers, and the dire consequences of misalignment. It is a privilege to be part of a team that is working on the trifecta of optimizing the health of patients, the working conditions of providers, and the cost-effectiveness of care delivery.

I have been around computers my whole life. I discovered my passion for programming and databases at UNC Greensboro, and I’ve recently completed my MIS at NC Central University. Since joining Duke in 2012, I have found it to be incredibly rewarding to provide insights and analytics that highlight opportunities and drive improvements in patient care and outcomes.

I have been working with healthcare and information systems for many years. I enjoy taking on new challenges; there is always something new to take on. Being a part of a team that ultimately delivers information to the business entities in order to make informed decisions is very fulfilling.
