Policy Research

The NCPC Policy Division conducts research to evaluate the impact of proposed and existing policies on the primary care system and the elimination of health disparities. Healthcare finance and delivery policies are rapidly evolving toward improving quality and paying for performance. The NCPC Policy Division’s research seeks to understand the impact of these policies on primary care clinicians, especially those serving uninsured patients and those insured by Medicaid. Some examples of our work studying the impact of policies include:

Informing Policy 

The NCPC Policy Division translates and disseminates research with the intent of informing evidence-based policy that advances health equity. We inform policy through public comments, discussions with policymakers, collaboration with partners, service on legislative committees and task forces, and through social media.
