BLOG: The RAND Health Experiment Reassessed In The New Wonk Review



October 18th, 2007

Hosting the latest Health Wonk Review, Jason Shafrin at the Healthcare Economist highlights two posts as the week’s best. On A Healthy Blog, John McDonough reviews an article suggesting that the RAND health experiment — the “gold standard” for health economics — could be wrong. And on Wachter’s World, Bob Wachter discusses pay-for-performance, observing that 79 percent of physicians believe that P4P is just a scheme to save money by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

    A more complete response to Nyman’s critique is now posted on my home page, http://www.hcp.med.harvard.edu/people/hcp_core_faculty/joseph_newhouse/. The response is entitled “Refusal and Attrition in the RAND Health Insurance Experiment” and will be forthcoming in the Journal of Health Politics, Policy, and Law.
