Health Policy & Economics

The Division of Health Policy and Economics studies the U.S. healthcare system with the goal of making discoveries and recommendations for improvement. We study the effects of public and private policies on provider organizations and the value of care delivered. We focus on incentives, unintended consequences, and the impact of policies and organizational processes on healthcare access, quality, and cost; population health outcomes; and health equity. Our current areas of investigation are broad and include alternative payment models; consolidation of provider organizations; private equity investment in healthcare; physician turnover; telehealth; Medicaid policy; long-term and post-acute care; and social determinants of health and equity.
