Research Program in Development Studies (Princeton University) Working Paper: “Understanding and Misunderstanding Randomized Controlled Trials,” by Angus Deaton and Nancy Cartwright (2016, .pdf format, 68p.).

Abstract:

RCTs are valuable tools whose use is spreading in economics and in other social sciences. They are seen as desirable aids in scientific discovery and for generating evidence for policy. Yet some of the enthusiasm for RCTs appears to be based on misunderstandings: that randomization provides a fair test by equalizing everything but the treatment and so allows a precise estimate of the treatment alone; that randomization is required to solve selection problems; that lack of blinding does little to compromise inference; and that statistical inference in RCTs is straightforward, because it requires only the comparison of two means. None of these statements is true. RCTs do indeed require minimal assumptions and can operate with little prior knowledge, an advantage when persuading distrustful audiences, but a crucial disadvantage for cumulative scientific progress, where randomization adds noise and undermines precision. The lack of connection between RCTs and other scientific knowledge makes it hard to use them outside of the exact context in which they are conducted. Yet, once they are seen as part of a cumulative program, they can play a role in building general knowledge and useful predictions, provided they are combined with other methods, including conceptual and theoretical development, to discover not “what works,” but why things work. Unless we are prepared to make assumptions, and to stand on what we know, making statements that will be incredible to some, all the credibility of RCTs is for naught.

Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “So Many Hospitals, So Little Information: How Hospital Value Based Purchasing is a Game of Chance,” by Andrew I. Friedson, William C. Horrace, and Allison F. Marier (Working Paper No. 192, August 2016, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

As part of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, participating Medicare hospitals have part of their Medicare reimbursements withheld and then redistributed based on quality performance. The Hospital Value Based Purchasing payment reimbursement plan relies partly on ordinal rankings of hospitals to determine how money is distributed. We analyze the quality metric distributions used for payment and show that there is not enough information to reliably differentiate hospitals from one another near the payment cutoffs; and conclude that a large part of the payment formula is driven by sampling variability rather than true quality information. This results in point allocation under the payment formula that is random for a large proportion of the hospitals. An alternative payment plan is discussed.
