Workshop on behavioral responses to health innovations and the consequences for socioeconomic outcomes
Researchers and the industry produce new knowledge, treatments, and technologies that constantly improve population health. However, the benefits of health innovations are unequally distributed. New health technologies spread at a different pace across groups in society, potentially allowing the high-educated groups to be more productive, have longer working lives, and invest more to finance an extended period of healthy retirement.
This workshop will bring together researchers in health economics who share an interest in these topics, including health and life expectancy inequalities, heterogeneous benefits from health innovations and doctor/patient interaction.
