Advanced Medical Care for At-Risk Newborns Nets Economic Benefits
Date:11/9/2011

Douglas Almond, Joseph J. Doyle, Jr., Amanda E. Kowalski and Heidi Williams will receive the 2011 Garfield Economic Impact Award for their paper entitled "Estimating Marginal Returns to Medical Care: Evidence from At-Risk Newborns." The authors applied a cutting-edge econometric methodology to evaluate the life-saving benefits of advanced, research-based medical care. They found compelling evidence that such care enables very low birth weight babies to "beat the odds," surviving at greater rates than would be expected based on birth weight alone. Their findings indicate that proper medical care for at-risk newborns translates to a net positive economic impact.
