Joseph Doyle

Erwin H. Schell Professor of Management
Professor of Applied Economics

Professor Doyle is a health economist working on measuring returns to healthcare (i.e., the relationship between healthcare spending and health outcomes, such as mortality and hospital admissions) with the goal of identifying value and waste in the $3 trillion United States healthcare system. Doyle’s work considers spending at the regional level and the hospital level, as well as spending within the hospital by specialists versus general practitioners and for particular procedures and diagnoses. Much of his research discovers settings where differences in treatment are effectively random to circumvent confounding factors.
