Acute Care Policy Research

The Acute Care Policy Research Group (ACP), led by Dr. Brendan Carr, is home to a dynamic, interdisciplinary mix of researchers who work together to explore the intersection of care delivery and population health.  To date, the ACP group has primarily focused on using the acute care system as a window into population health.  The core work focuses on understanding the underlying drivers of variability in health outcomes and developing novel approaches to align incentives in order to improve health.
