To date, this has included work on racial and ethnic minorities, older adults with frailty, people with disabilities, and people with serious mental illness. His research also focuses on evaluating how policy interventions and payment reform aimed at improving quality of care and controlling costs are working, and in particular, how they affect safety-net providers and hospitals.
