Title: Do You Get What You Pay For? Financial Incentives in Public Policy: Part 2
Publication Date: 09/26/11
Description:

Presented by MDRC, Center for an Urban Future, NYU Wagner, and NYU Wagner's Economic and Finance Association Join us for a half-day forum to present the latest innovations in the use of financial incentives in social and health policy, much of it being pioneered right here in New York City. We will take lessons learned from local examples and elsewhere and assess their applicability to policymakers at the city and state level, with a particular emphasis on providing new ideas to the relatively new gubernatorial administrations in New York, New Jersey and Conneticut. We will assess what has been learned about incentives over the past decades of wide experimentation and propose concrete reform ideas for the next generation of policy development — within the context of the “new normal” of budgetary constraints. Panel 2: Can Incentives Make People Healthy? Panelists: Joann Casado, Executive Director, The Bronx Health Link Brian Elbel, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Health Policy, NYU School of Medicine Nicholas Freudenberg, Distinguished Professor, Urban Public Health, Hunter College Kevin Volpp, Professor of Medicine and Health Care Management, Director of the Center for Health Incentives, University of Pennsylvania Ben Barnes (Wagner MUP '93), Secretary of the State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management, moderator
