Adil has 25 years of experience in health services research, consulting, and program evaluation. He has extensive knowledge of federal and state programs to support health care financing and delivery with expertise in the health care safety net and health IT programs.
Adil directs NORC’s Physician Focused Payment Model Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) support contract with the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). NORC supports the PTAC federal advisory committee’s work by conducting in-depth policy analysis, facilitating expert convenings, and providing analytic support central to the Committee’s review of alternative payment models proposals submitted for consideration. Previously, Adil directed a multi-million-dollar evaluation of Health Care Innovation Awards funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. These projects aimed to improve health care quality, control health care costs, and improve health outcomes. The interventions fostered integration and communication across health care settings and help patients access health education, behavioral health, and social support resources. Each project focused on a population with conditions (e.g., diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease) that drive morbidity, mortality, and avoidable health care expenditures.
Prior to coming to NORC, Adil was a consultant for the Lewin Group.

He also served as an Analyst at ASPE’s Division of Health Policy. At ASPE, he helped coordinate research activities across HHS and helped design the first ever national evaluation of the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
