Christine E Bishop's picture

Profile

Professor Bishop is a health economist who applies microeconomics to policy-related problems in health services supply, demand, and financing. Her studies in long-term services and supports (LTSS, also called long-term care) and Medicare post-acute services have been concerned with both provider and recipient behavior, considering costs, production efficiency, payment, financing, and utilization of nursing homes and home health services. Her current research concerning the LTSS workforce builds on her training as a labor economist and early research and publications on nursing labor markets. She has led or co-led evaluations of delivery system and payment innovations, developed policy analyses concerning long-term and post-acute utilization and payment, and carried out econometric analyses using data derived from national sample surveys, administrative data, and project data collection.
