Health Policy and Economics Research

The Division of Health Policy and Economics studies the U.S. healthcare system and makes important discoveries and recommendations for improvement. It studies the use and effectiveness of incentive policies such as pay for performance, value-based purchasing, and public reporting, paying special attention to disparities and unintended consequences. Among recent topics of investigation are physician costs in interacting with health plans and payers, physician practice organization and processes to improve medical care and control costs, and the role of accountable care organizations and medical homes in health system reform. The Division also focusses on logistics planning for disease and disaster preparedness.
