Five Reasons Why Health Care Quality Research Hasn't Affected Competition Law and Policy


  • David A. Hyman



Research on health care quality has become increasingly sophisticated, but the research has not had a major impact on competition law and policy. Five specific translational barriers (relevance/litigation dynamics, complexity, framing, judicial and administrative skepticism, and inadequate demand) are identified. If researchers on health care quality want to have an impact on competition law and policy they must confront and overcome these translational barriers.
