Kim Paull is a Fellow at The Policy Lab and Director of Data & Analytics for Rhode Island’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services. Kim developed and now oversees the state’s Data Ecosystem, a pioneering analytic approach that connects data at the person and family level across state agencies, helping us understand the whole person, the whole family, and the whole community we serve.
Kim has a deep interest in compelling, community-driven studies that inspire action; shaping data for easy self-service analytics; and cultivating a team culture that does our recruiting for us. Before joining EOHHS, Kim worked as an actuary and then shifted to public policy, including healthcare finance, public health, and programming in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
Kim has led analytics at Rhode Island’s largest primary care group and its Office at the Health Insurance Commissioner (OHIC), which was the first commercial insurance regulator to mandate minimum primary care spend and cap hospital price increases, leading to broad reductions in overall spending.
Kim is from the great state of New Jersey and now lives across from sod fields in South County — where the grass is literally always greener — with her wife and 3.5-year-old twins(!). She loves rowing, reading, and tea.
