Joseph P. Newhouse

John D. MacArthur Professor of Health Policy and Management and Chair, Committee on Higher Degrees in Health Policy, Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard Univeristy.

Dr. Newhouse is the John D. MacArthur Professor of Health Policy and Management at Harvard University, Director of the Division of Health Policy Research and Education, chair of the Committee on Higher Degrees in Health Policy, and Director of the Interfaculty Initiative in Health Policy. He is a member of the faculties of the John F. Kennedy School of Government, the Harvard Medical School, the Harvard School of Public Health, and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, as well as a Faculty Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research. He received B.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Economics from Harvard University. Following his Bachelors degree, he spent a year at Göethe University in Frankfurt/Main, Germany as a Fulbright Scholar. Dr. Newhouse spent the first twenty years of his career at RAND, where he designed and directed the RAND Health Insurance Experiment, a project that ran from 1971 to 1988 that studied the consequences of different ways of financing medical services. From 1981 to 1985 he was Head of the RAND Economics Department.

In 1981 he became the founding editor of the Journal of Health Economics, which he continues to edit. He is currently the vice-chair of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, which reviews Medicare payment policy and makes recommendations to the Congress. This Commission resulted from the 1997 merger of two predecessor commissions, the Prospective Payment Assessment Commission, which made recommendations to the Congress concerning the payment of hospital and other institutional providers, and the Physician Payment Review Commission, which performed a similar function for physicians. Newhouse chaired the former Commission in 1996 and 1997 and served as a Commissioner on the latter between 1993 and 1996. He has been elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, and has served two terms on its governing Council. He has also been elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is a past President of the Association for Health Services Research and of the International Health Economics Association. He is the American Economics Association representative to the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His biography appears in Who’s Who in Economics, which includes the 1,000 most cited living economists. He is currently a regent of the National Library of Medicine.

He was the first recipient of the David N. Kershaw Award and Prize of the Association for Public Policy and Management in 1983, which honors persons under 40 who have made a distinguished contribution to the field of public policy analysis and management. In 1988 he received the Baxter Health Services Research Prize for an unusually significant contribution to the improved medical care of the public through innovative health services research, as well as the Administrator's Citation from the Health Care Financing Administration, the Agency's highest award. He was the co-recipient of the Article-of-the-Year Award for 1989 from the Association for Health Services Research and in 1992 received the Association’s Distinguished Investigator Award. In 1995 he was named an initial Distinguished Fellow of the Association. In 1995 he received the Hans Sigrist Foundation Prize for distinguished scientific achievement, as well as the American Risk and Insurance Association’s Elizur Wright Award for a contribution to the risk management and insurance literature. In 1997 he gave the Walras-Pareto lectures in Lausanne. In 2000 he was the first recipient of the Zvi Griliches award and also gave the Chung Hua lectures in Taipei. From 1989 to 1993 he served as chair of the Health Services Research Grants Review Committee of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research.
