Improving Value and Equity in Health

Guided by a vision to improve “value” and “equity” in health, Pinar Karaca-Mandic’s research has contributed to four intersecting areas of scientific knowledge and policy guidance: (1) value and diffusion of medical technologies and treatments, (2) uptake of evidence-based information on safety and effectiveness, (3) access and affordability of healthcare through health insurance, and (4) sustainable financial and technology innovations to address market frictions and social determinants of health such as food insecurity and housing instability.
