Ellen Green

Asst Professor
Faculty, DTPHX Campus, Mailcode 9020
Biography: 

Ellen P. Green is an assistant professor in the College of Health Solutions and a research affiliate at the Mayo Clinic. The goal of Green's research is to improve the quality of public policymaking such that it has a direct and positive impact on the health of our population. Her research is founded by the principle that a better understanding of the nuances of decision-making through behavioral economics will allow us to design more effective and innovative public policy. Green leverages both laboratory and framed field experiments to evaluate changes to clinician behavior from health care policy including the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act and CMS' Conditions of Participation (CoP)s for organ transplant programs. Her research has pertinent implications among both developed and developing economies.
