RAND Launches Unique Tool to Evaluate Health Care Proposals
Date:1/13/2009

sted on a wide scale.

COMPARE is a one-stop location for detailed information on the present state of the American health care system. Data on spending, reliability, patient experience, coverage and capacity will provide visitors to the site with a broad understanding of current policy and health in the United States today.

"All the parties in the coming health care debate will have their own opinions on how best to address the challenges we face," said Jeffrey Wasserman, co-director of COMPARE and a senior policy researcher at RAND. "We created COMPARE to contribute credible, objective and easy-to-understand facts and analysis so that those opinions can be based on real information. We don't expect that everyone will like everything COMPARE reports, but we hope everyone will recognize the contribution COMPARE makes to the health care debate."

COMPARE is built to last with a modular, flexible design that will enable RAND to continue to contribute to debates about health policy issues into the future. RAND researchers plan to expand the modeling to estimate the effects of different proposals for improving the delivery of health services, reducing the rate of cost growth and reforming payment systems. The COMPARE team will interact with policymakers to provide information that can shape the design of new proposals.

To access COMPARE, please visit www.randcompare.org. The website will be live at 3 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 13.

COMPARE is funded by a broad range of individuals, corporations, corporate foundations, philanthropic foundations, and health system stakeholders.

To date, funders include the following: AARP; Abraxis BioScience, Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, Founder, Chairma
