In my day job, I work in the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI), a research center within the University of Pennsylvania. I cover events related to the science of health services research (HSR), a discipline that analyzes how the U.S. healthcare system is organized, financed, managed and quality controlled. The more than 300 scientists connected to LDI document the many things that don’t work well in the current U.S. healthcare system. Since March, 2020, their work has been dramatically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; many are now focused on studying and explaining what coronavirus means to the U.S. health care system in the short and long run. Here are some of my recent photo, video and text stories about these scientists and their work over the last several years.
