Q&A with Noah Kalman

(04/19/12 10:29am)

In a recently published article in the New England Journal of Medicine, Noah Kalman, a joint medical doctorate and MBA candidate at the School of Medicine and the Fuqua School of Business, and his co-authors argue that Medicare would save $17 billion annually if hospitals were required to offer patients a warranty on medical services. The warranty-based program seeks to alter Medicare’s readmissions-reduction program by giving hospitals a financial incentive to reduce the rate of patient readmittance. The Chronicle’s Danielle Muoio spoke with Kalman about his proposal and its effect on Medicare, hospitals and patient care.
