HMP Faculty and Alum Collaborate on Research

Andy Ryan, Associate Professor of Health Management and Policy collaborated with HMP alum, Kristin Maurer (MPH, '16) and others on two articles, which were recently accepted in JAMA Internal Medicine and the Annual Review of Public Health.

The JAMA IM paper (Hospital Engagement in Value-Based Reforms with Readmission Reduction in the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program) found that hospital engagement in voluntary value-based programs led to improved performance in the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program. The Annual Review of Public Health paper (Impact of Provider Incentives on Quality and Value of Health Care) contrasts the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program and Hospital Value-Based Purchasing to try to identify why one worked when the other did not.
