John D. Thompson (1917-1992) was a Professor at Yale’s Schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Public Health, and is perhaps best known for his role in the development of Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) for hospital reimbursement. A true innovator, Professor Thompson was an early advocate for the application of quantitative data in health policy formulation. Today’s healthcare management students and leaders continue to be inspired by his compassion for patients, dedication to research, and belief in the power of data.  The John Devereaux Thompson Academic Development Fund was created in his honor.
