Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Kinosian's research has focused on the impact of clinical programs focused on frail elders in the community, and their ability to improve their quality of life. This has included developing community partnerships to integrate social and medical care, extend acute medical care into the home, and testing financing mechanisms that better align incentives for providers and patients.
