Dr. Sfekas’s Curriculum Vitae
My research focuses on several topics in the health care industry. I am currently looking at how competition occurs in the hospital industry. Specifically, I have examined under what circumstances hospitals can leverage their positions to achieve higher prices; the role of public insurance and low-income patients in hospital competition; and the role of organizational focus in hospital profits. I am also examining how new technologies compete with old ones within a hospital. Finally, I am looking at several aspects of how hospitals and surgeons learn through experience. I have also done work on several topics at the intersection of economics and public health. In particular, I have examined the effects of cigarette prices and taxes on smoking initiation and the effects of major illness on household wealth.
