Alyna Chien, MD, MS

Alyna Chien’s area of research expertise is in the relationship between the structure of the health care system, the incentives and price information that doctors and patients face, and resulting health care quality and spending, particularly for vulnerable populations. Her work has shown that incentives can improve preventive and chronic disease care for adult and pediatric patients in mixed and low-income populations. Dr. Chien’s current projects include examining the structure of large health care organizations and the quality of pediatric health care they provide, understanding spending variation for “shoppable” conditions (childbirth, breast cancer and prostate cancer), understanding how medical providers respond to patient’s social needs, and describing care quality and spending among children with disabilities.
