To tackle health care's thorniest problems, 400 health researchers form new U-M-based institute

or research groups across the country."

IHPI members' work is mainly computer-based, but a $13.7 million renovation of a former office building has created space that encourages collaboration and spontaneous meetings. IHPI will also offer computing support and facilities.

By analyzing large amounts of data from hospitals, government agencies, medical societies, insurance companies and other sources, the IHPI researchers hope to spot problems and trends, evaluate how well new treatments and technologies work, and identify ways to improve quality, safety, equity and cost-effectiveness.

The formation of IHPI will give them access to new tools, partnerships and data sources and allow them to share ideas more readily.

Even though not all IHPI members will move to NCRC, the ability for all members to come together virtually should spark collaboration and allow them to seek even more public and private partners also interested in health care delivery. The search for a director for IHPI is now under way.

"Our faculty, and their teams, have for decades made sizable contributions to the improvement of health services and health policy realms," says Martin Philbert, Ph.D., dean of the U-M School of Public Health. "This new institute will deepen and amplify that impact, and will open new avenues for collaboration within and beyond our institution."

"Co-location of health services researchers from across U-M will enable interactions and insights that push the boundaries of our scholarly work and further its impact on health care practice and policy," says James O. Woolliscroft, M.D., dean of the U-M Medical School. "Already the work of IHPI members is making an impact across the country and around the world, and this dedicated new headquarters for the Institute will enable continued success in this growing field."
