Implementing State Health Reform: A New SCI Report and Upcoming Webinar

Implementing State Health Reform: Lessons for Policymakers, a new SCI report written by Navigant Consulting, draws on the implementation experiences of five states:  Massachusetts, New Mexico, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin. The report identifies not only the key questions that policymakers should ask when considering health care reform, but also a set of related takeaways, particularly about what must happen operationally pre- and post-implementation. The questions and takeaways are relevant to both state and national reform initiatives, in part because state governments are typically charged with implementing reforms and state experience offers insight into the overall design of reforms. Understanding those issues is particularly critical now as the potential enactment of federal reform will have enormous implementation implications for states.

Join SCI for a webinar to discuss the major findings. Authors and officials from Tennessee, Vermont, and Wisconsin will share their experiences and potential implications for states as they begin thinking about implementation of federal health reform.

When: April 8, 2010 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT
