|Health care policymakers and economists traditionally toil in different circles, producing sometimes divergent perspectives on how to address the problem of escalating health costs and access to care. This schism between policymakers and economists makes it hard for journalists to make the important link between health policy and economics. To help journalists connect the dots, ERIU offers a variety of resources:
Interviews - Additional interviews
with ERIU-funded experts get their views on a variety
of important health policy topics.
Short Takes - The economic principles underlying issues about coverage and the uninsured are often overlooked in the news. With these short takes, ERIU tries to take the myth and the mystique out of topics covered by the media.
The researchers conducting ERIU-funded
projects include economists and health
policy researchers in academic and
non-academic settings throughout
Fast Facts - Fast Fact tables are compiled by ERIU and contain useful coverage information for various subpopulations from several data sets.
ERIU Funded Research - Summaries and highlights of research projects funded by ERIU.
