ISER is partnering with the national non-partison research institution NORC at the University of Chicago to support the Alaska Healthcare Transformation Project.  The two research organizations will provide research and analysis of both Alaska-specific costs and programs, and national data and programs, to inform future decision-making in the state. The Alaska Healthcare Transformation Project is a collaboration between legislators, policy makers, state administration, healthcare industry leaders, patient advocates, and private payers to improve Alaska’s population health, improve patient experiences and lower the per capita healthcare cost growth rate.
