The Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics and the University of Pennsylvania Health System announce the inaugural LDI-Penn Medicine Research Laboratory. Developed in partnership between Rachel M. Werner, MD, PhD (Executive Director, Penn LDI) and Kevin Mahoney, MBA (Chief Executive Officer, University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS)), the Research Lab is a unique partnership that invites the deep expertise of LDI-affiliated faculty to Penn Medicine’s health delivery setting to ask and answer pressing questions about health care delivery. The goals of this strategic partnership are both to advance LDI’s mission of developing generalizable health care knowledge for the nation and to generate actionable knowledge which guides Penn Medicine’s operational decisions towards ensuring that patients receive the best care.
