The awards ceremony was part of the organization’s April 9 Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.
Dr. Schwartz was presented with a Milton W. Hamolsky Junior Faculty Scientific Presentation Award for his paper, “Variation in Low-Value Service Use Across Veterans Affairs Facilities.”

Dr. Schwartz’s research focuses on understanding and improving health care efficiency and quality. Recent projects have examined the use of low-value care in Medicare, the incentive properties of hospital performance measures, and the role of private and public insurer coverage rules.
