Health Care and Innovation: Why Not Better and Cheaper? Webinar Series – Missing Innovations

Useful innovations—particularly those that reduce costs—often fail to take root and spread in the health sector while others of sometimes dubious value proliferate. The first webinar in our innovation series will discuss why valuable innovations sometimes go missing in health care and what to do about it. Key topics include:

  • The economics of innovation in health care, including the power and limitations of incentives.
  • The role of professional and social norms in the development and spread of innovations.
  • How market competition influences the willingness of firms to adopt innovations.
