Some recent publications

While I was on vacation, I published two pieces elsewhere.

  1. On hospital mergers and prices with Elsa Pearson in the Providence Journal: “Mergers are often advertised as a way to reduce prices and improve quality of care. We know from decades of research that they do neither of those things and it’s time we stop believing those who say they do.”
  2. On clinical practice guidelines with Gilbert Benavidez on the Health Affairs blog: “Guideline structure, requirements, and adherence continue to be widely varied. With no universal standard nor enforcement of any methodology, a fragmented mass of promulgating bodies will continue to publish guidelines subject to the bias, contradictory information, lack of rigorous evidence, and limited applicability that prior studies have documented.”

Both pieces received research support from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
