Tiffany Radcliff is an expert in health services research and health economics. Dr. Radcliff received a doctorate in Health Services Research, Policy, and Administration from the University of Minnesota. She primarily studies problems related to market failures in health care systems, ways to improve efficiency in the delivery of services, and improving quality of care for vulnerable or underserved populations such as those in rural areas, patients with limited life expectancy, patients in long-term care settings, the uninsured, and subpopulations with financial or other disadvantages in accessing healthcare services. She serves as principal investigator or co-investigator for several sponsored studies, including a VA-sponsored project to examine peri-operative care and outcomes for elderly hip fracture patients. Her peer-reviewed research has been published in Health Affairs, Archives of Internal Medicine, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, and others.
