Martin Gaynor's research is focused on the economics of health care markets and health care organizations. His research on health care markets concentrates on the restructuring of health care markets and implications for antitrust policy, vertical restraints in health care, the industrial organization of the physician services market, and the effects of information in markets for health services. His research on the economics of health care organizations is focused on the determinants of the internal organization of medical group practices and the effects of these arrangements on group performance, and the determinants of hospital behavior and the consequent implications for performance. Dr. Gaynor was awarded the 1996 Kenneth J. Arrow Award for best published article worldwide in health economics, and is a recipient of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Award in Health Policy Research.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"My motivation as an economist is to use rigorous analytical tools to help improve society, and to make sure we do so in the most efficient way possible. As our society ages, we need to find ways to address the issues faced by the elderly at an affordable cost for younger generations. The QoLT project offers an ideal opportunity for making a contribution to addressing this pressing social issue."
