Online Resource Provides Ideas and Expertise About Tackling Some of the Challenges Inherent in Health Reform

With comprehensive federal health care reform being considered for the first time in many years, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has funded the work of national experts to provide guidance on some of the tough legal, legislative, and administrative issues that will arise as reform progresses.

Papers were written by experts from the National Academy of Public Administration, the National Academy of Social Insurance, the Georgetown University O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, and FRESH-Thinking, and have been compiled in a new section at RWJF.org called Overcoming Barriers. This online resource allows viewers to easily find information contained in the papers about effectively implementing policy, market, or cost reforms–as well as other topics.

The non-partisan reports and research papers were driven by pragmatism and academic rigor, not ideology. All of the information presented involves independent evaluation of the issues that must be considered during the development of effective and comprehensive health care reform policy.
