Freedman’s primary research agenda focuses on innovations in healthcare and health insurance. He is particularly interested in the impacts of innovations and changes in the healthcare delivery system on economic and patient outcomes, the influence of policies and market incentives on the adoption of new innovations, and how recent changes in public health insurance impact the healthcare system.

My primary research focus is in health economics. I am particularly interested in the causes and consequences of technology adoption and other health care provider decisions.
