Nate Kaufman debunks RAND’s flawed research in new analysis of recent hospital price study

Kaufman Strategic Advisors Managing Director Nate Kaufman responded to the RAND Corporation’s flawed and incomplete hospital pricing survey in a new analysis published today.

According to Kaufman, the RAND report “commoditized quality and care delivery; ignored the importance of physicians in the care delivery process; and assumed that a reduction in services, physicians, and facilities would not be the most likely response to their irrational pricing demands.”

The AHA issued its own statement and blog post on the report.
