Dr. Howard’s work focuses on the research, development and evaluation of health reform initiatives and novel care delivery models. At the organization-level, this includes economic and outcomes-based evaluation of healthcare organizations’ models of care. At the state level, this has included analysis of the State of Oregon’s Coordinated Care Organization health reform model. Steven’s current federal-level research includes study of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and the relationships between the market penetration of the Medicare Advantage program and changes in the chronic disease burden at a population level.
