Health care policy
Research and Education
The National Institute of Health Policy (NIHP) is a health policy development
partnership of the two largest public and private universities in Minnesota and
is designed to promote the creation of effective health policy. It is a neutral
forum which can facilitate:
- thoughtful, results-oriented dialogue on health policy issues,
- education of policy makers and the general public,
- and development of well-informed, highly effective leadership in all
areas of health policy.
The mission of the NIHP is to improve the health of the population and the quality of health services by improving public
policy. To achieve this mission, the NIHP creates and facilitates processes whereby diverse sets of constituencies are
involved in seeking public and private sector solutions. These solutions are created by participatory dialogue, research,
education and the dissemination of new information. The process is designed to elevate the discussion beyond parochial
interests in order to shape public policy within the transition to a new health care system.
