About James

James Reschovsky is an expert in health care payment systems and health care quality.

He holds key leadership roles on several Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation projects, including a bundled payment demonstration that is determining whether hospitals receive shared savings or bear extra costs as a result of the cost and quality of providing joint replacements to Medicare beneficiaries. He also oversees impact evaluations for two Health Care Innovation Award grantees testing a patient-centered medical home intervention as well as an intervention to improve treatment of patients with high risk of major cardiovascular events.

For the National Institute for Health Care Reform, Reschovsky contributes to an evaluation of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan’s patient-centered medical home program, a study estimating the cost of defensive medicine, and an evaluation of the impact of benefit design changes on patient costs and quality. He also helped lead a project for the Agency for Healthcare Reform and Quality (AHRQ) to improve data collection on physicians and their practices.

At the Center for Studying Health System Change, Reschovsky led survey and quantitative efforts for the long-running Community Tracking Study and studied a range of health policy topics, including insurance coverage and markets, managed care, care delivery, and determinants of health care costs and quality.

Reschovsky also held research positions at AHRQ and academic posts at Cornell University and Michigan State. He publishes regularly in peer-reviewed journals, including Health Affairs, the Journal of General Internal Medicine, and the American Journal of Managed Care. He is a member of AcademyHealth and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management and a referee/reviewer for Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine. He holds a Ph.D. in public policy studies from the University of Michigan.
