February, Professors David
Dranove (left) and Mark
Satterthwaite presented their award-winning research to
the Kellogg School community. Recent winners of the prestigious
Stanley Reiter Best Paper Award, the professors shared
insights from their publication titled, "Is More Information
Better? The Effects of 'Report Cards' on Health Care Providers."
The research, co-authored with Daniel Kessler and Mark McClellan,
was published in the June 2003 Journal of Political Economy
and illustrates dynamics associated with information disclosure.
Dranove is the Walter J. McNerney Distinguished Professor
of Health Industry Management; Satterthwaite is the A.C. Buehler
Professor of Hospital and Health Services. The Reiter Award,
established in 2001, is given annually for an academic article
deemed "best" among those published by Kellogg professors
in the preceding four years.
