Health care reform

You are here

Our health policy experts partner with clinical providers from across the health sciences to develop the research that state and national legislative leaders need to effectively guide health reform efforts. 

In June 2012, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, setting the country on a path to health reform that will benefit millions of people across the United States.

But changing the U.S. health care system isn’t easy. Altering health policy requires a fundamental understanding of current cracks in the system, or where policy improvements can have the most impact. Reform efforts can’t succeed without a strong foundation of policy research from experts that can analyze massive amounts of health data and draw the connections necessary for effective laws and new policy direction.

At the University of Minnesota, our health policy experts partner with clinical providers from across the health sciences to develop the research that state and national legislative leaders need to effectively guide health reform efforts. 

Healthcare Reform

We also analyze and study current health reform policies already underway in our country to determine where policy changes could make efforts even more effective. 

Successfully reforming the health care systems we’re all dependent on will require cooperation and new ways of thinking. Within the University of Minnesota’s health sciences, it’s our goal to help light the path forward.
