Summary of Experience

Professor Dranove's research focuses on problems in industrial organization and business strategy, with an emphasis on the health care industry. He has published nearly 100 research articles and book chapters, and is the author of six books, including The Economic Evolution of American Healthcare, Code Red, and the textbook The Economics of Strategy, which is used by leading business schools around the world. Professor Dranove regularly consults with leading health care organizations in the public and private sectors. He also has two decades of experience performing and testifying about economic analyses in both litigation and regulatory actions. Most recently, he testified on competition issues for the US Department of Justice in the agency's effort to block a proposed merger of two commercial health insurers. Professor Dranove concluded that the proposed transaction likely would result in higher prices and less innovation. He also has served on the executive committee and board of directors of the Health Care Cost Institute. Professor Dranove is on the review board of numerous prominent industry journals; he is the editor of the International Journal of Health Economics and Management and an associate editor of the RAND Journal of Economics
