Speaker Information

Meredith Rosenthal
C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics and Policy
Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Meredith Rosenthal’s research focuses primarily on policies that are designed to improve the affordability and value of health care in the United States. These efforts include changes in payment incentives, benefit design, and the provision of information and behavioral “nudges” to both patients and providers. Her research has influenced the design of provider payment systems in both the public and private sectors. She has advised federal and state policymakers in healthcare payment policy and implementation. She has also testified in Congressional hearings on direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs and pay-for-performance and in legislative hearings in California and Massachusetts concerning healthcare provider payment and benefit design policies.
