Hello World! This is my first blog post from UTMB’s Office of Health Policy and Legislative Affairs. There is a lot going on at the moment in the world impacting academic health science centers. Health Care Reform. Workforce Development. Research. Patient Care. Safety. Quality. Costs and Reimbursements. Consumer Protection. Legislative controversy as well as opportunity exists at the federal and state levels. There is much to talk about, to speculate on, and to discuss.
Over the next few months (or years) it is my hope that we can share some information, develop some policy discussions, and critically review potential legislative solutions that impact health science centers and the future of our state, nation and world’s health.
