Dr. Iezzoni's research focuses on three areas: 1) the epidemiology of walking impairments among adult Americans due to chronic illness; 2) the views of persons whose walking has failed, primarily concerning perceived barriers to mobility assistance and experiences with the health care system; and 3) the attitudes of health professionals and payers concerning services to assist mobility for chronically ill persons. Her results describe barriers experienced by those with walking impairments and policy options for overcoming them. Background:
Lisa I. Iezzoni, MD, MSc, has been named director of the MGH/Partners Mongan Institute for Health Policy (MIHP).
Iezzoni has been associate director of the MIHP since 2006 and is a leading authority on risk adjustment for cost and quality measurement as well as health policy and access issues. She has made many contributions to academia, research, and health policy and delivery, including authoring three books and dozens of articles on topics related to assessing severity of illness, measuring complications of inpatient care, and health care disparities affecting persons with disabilities. She has led health policy-related studies for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Health Care Financing Administration, and private foundations. She also has served on the editorial boards of 11 medical and health services research journals. Before joining MGH, she spent 16 years as co-director of research in the general medicine division of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), where she had the distinction of being the first woman at BIDMC to be appointed a Harvard Medical School (HMS) professor of Medicine.
