Access to health care
Health insurance and health system design
Jeanne is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacy and Health Systems Sciences in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University. She studies access to health care, in particular the burden of high costs on patients and specific features of health insurance and health system design that can help or hinder patient access to care. Her research has emphasized the impacts of system changes on individuals with special vulnerability, such as those with mental illness or other chronic conditions and socially disadvantaged groups.
Her work as an IHESJR Fellow in 2018-19 is focused on food insecurity among Medicare beneficiaries. An inability to access sufficient healthy food is likely at least as harmful as inability to access health care. As risk-sharing arrangements with between providers and payers proliferate, health systems have been intensifying their efforts to address food insecurity as a key social determinant of health.
