On Thursday, Katherine Baicker, C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Jason Bauman, Manager of J-PAL’s U.S. Health Care Delivery Initiative hosted a webinar to share more information about the J-PAL Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition.
During the webinar, Kate shared an in-depth perspective on her work as a primary investigator on an evaluation of the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) in South Carolina. This evaluation of NFP requires a strong partnership between government officials, health care practitioners, and researchers. Jason provided additional examples of J-PAL evaluations that require comprehensive partnerships.
The Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition aims to support the design of randomized evaluations through flexible pilot funding, technical support, and the cultivation of such partnerships. Learn more about the competition and how to apply here.
