Public Policy and Health Care Sector Reform

Public Policy and Health Care Sector Reform

In the health and pharmaceutical sectors, NERA economists have broad experience helping corporations and governments achieve "value for money" through the design of institutional and regulatory frameworks. From devising a new framework for health financing in the UK to advising the Lebanese government on a vision for health policy to assisting the Montana Attorney General on how to regulate hospital pricing, our consultants are experienced in applying their knowledge of "what works" in different policy environments. In the same way, we also help corporations such as hospitals, insurers, pharmaceutical companies, and industry associations understand the implications of changing policy environments and how best to respond to them.
