The J-PAL Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition supports federal, state, and local government health agencies and other health care organizations in the United States in developing compelling and reliable evidence of innovative programs.
The competition supports the design and implementation of randomized evaluations of programs with the potential to serve as models for deploying health and social services to improve health outcomes and enhance the accessibility and affordability of quality health care.
On Friday, Amy Finkelstein, J-PAL North America’s co-Scientific Director and Ford Professor of Economics at MIT, and Quentin Palfrey, J-PAL North America’s Executive Director, hosted a webinar to share more information about the competition. Amy and Quentin described the motivation for the competition, the funding and technical support that will be available to selected applicants, and the characteristics of strong applications. They also discussed relevant randomized evaluations conducted by J-PAL-affiliated professors to date, as well as potentially promising, but not yet studied, programs and topics.
