Description
  • Professor Kessler's research interests include empirical studies in antitrust law, law and economics, and the economics of health care. His recent work focuses on the consequences of hospital mergers and hospital ownership (nonprofit versus for-profit) for the cost and quality of medical care. His new book, Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise: Five Steps to a Better Health Care System (with John Cogan and R. Glenn Hubbard), outlines how market-based health care reform in the U.S. can help fix our system's current problems. Currently, he is investigating how to use medical claims data to identify the types of health care providers that are likely to commit Medicare fraud and abuse.
