The Center for Research on Families welcomes David Grabowski, who will present “Opportunities and Challenges of Using Market-based Approaches to Encourage High Quality Nursing Home Care." 

Grabowski is a professor of health care policy in the department of health care policy at Harvard Medical School.

The quality of nursing home care in the U.S. is a longstanding policy concern. In response, the use of market-based approaches, like pay-for-performance and quality report cards, has grown in recent years. To date, these programs have been somewhat mixed in terms of improving performance. Grabowski will broadly review the policy issues and discuss several studies focusing on nursing home care and challenges to improving care.
