The five-year, $3 million research partnership aims to better understand -- with a focus on medical imaging -- how evolving healthcare delivery and payment models affect patients and providers, according to the institute. HEAL, which will be part of Georgia Tech's Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, will be led by Danny Hughes, PhD, executive director of the Neiman Institute and a Georgia Tech professor of economics.
Neiman said the lab will support full-time postdoctoral researchers, graduate research assistants, and affiliated Georgia Tech faculty to produce both methodological and policy-oriented research. Secondarily, the lab will provide training and mentorship to radiologists interested in performing health economics and health policy research, according to the institute.
In addition to financial support, Neiman will also provide HEAL researchers with access to its data resources, including large-scale medical claims databases covering millions of U.S. residents.
