Research Interests: Cooperative Competition, Game Theory, Mechanism Design, Optimization, Simulation, Applied Statistics
The focus of Brendan's research is to address cooperative competition in healthcare systems using game theory models and mechanism design. Guided by the IHI Triple Aim, these models are designed to reduce waste and inefficient allocation of scarce resources (controlling the cost of care); prevent failures in care coordination (enhancing the quality of care); and achieve sustainable cooperative equilibria among regional health care providers (improving the health of the population). This research is coordinated under the CHOT project that investigates economic incentives and accountable care. Brendan is also working on two applied projects under the CMS grant to (1) develop a shared savings program for Commonwealth Care Alliance's payments to skilled nursing facilities and, (2) determine the resource needs of Atrius Health's home-based primary care program with simulation. His hobbies include movies, music, and lists of three.
