BioLaw Lunch Speaker Series: Alain Enthoven, PhD


November 27, 2007 12:30pm - 1:30pm

Alain Enthoven is the Marriner S. Eccles Professor of Public and Private Management, emeritus, at Stanford University, and a core faculty member at Center for Health Policy/Primary Care and Outcomes Research. Known as the "father of managed competition," he was one of the founders of the Jackson Hole Group, a national think-tank on healthcare policy. His research focuses on the financing and delivery of health care in the United States and other industrialized nations, and cost-benefit analysis in medical care. In his numerous publications he has advocated a financially integrated healthcare delivery system that relies on market-based incentives to reduce medical costs and increase economic accountability and quality of care. He is currently working on a proposal for a "Market-based Universal Health Insurance System," being developed for the Committee for Economic Development. Prof. Enthoven received the Baxter Prize for Health Services Research (1994), and the Board of Directors Award from the Healthcare Financial Management Association (1995). In 1963, he received the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service from John F. Kennedy. He received a BA from Stanford, a master's degree from Oxford and a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology -- all in economics.
