Seth Freedman specializes in health economics and health policy. He joined O’Neill in 2012 after two years as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholar in Health Policy Research at the University of Michigan.
Freedman’s primary research agendas focus on healthcare provider decision making and the role of public health insurance. He is particularly interested in the impacts of innovations and changes in the healthcare delivery system on economic and patient outcomes, the influence of policies and market incentives on the adoption and use of healthcare technologies, and how recent changes in public health insurance impact the healthcare system.
His research has been published in journals such as Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Public Economics, American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, Journal of Health Economics, American Journal of Health Economics, Health Affairs, and Annals of Emergency Medicine. His research has been funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Freedman teaches courses in health policy, health economics, and statistical research methods, and he was awarded the Trustees Teaching Award in 2019.
