Jonathan Skinner is a health economist who leads several research projects funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA). These are large-scale interdisciplinary collaborations at Dartmouth and partner institutions, drawing on Dartmouth’s comprehensive Medicare and Medicaid datasets. Skinner’s ongoing research focuses on studying the contribution of “high-tech” health care to cost growth, the diffusion of various types of medical innovations (beneficial and harmful), how provider networks affect technology diffusion, and whether high-quality health providers affect population-level health outcomes.
A member of the National Academy of Medicine, Dr. Skinner is also a research associate and director of the Aging Program at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). He has taught in Dartmouth’s economics department since 1995, where he serves as the James O. Freedman Presidential Professor, and is a frequent contributor to the national conversation about health policy.
