Policy Center Evaluation

We started our evaluation in June 2011. Here are our three areas of focus:

Markets   We want to understand what kinds of health policy partnership the health system wants or needs - locally, in our state, and in the greater Northwest region.

Products   We want to understand what our faculty and research staff's health policy interests are, where their expertise lies, and where their research coincides with health policy. This includes faculty and research staff in the UW School of Public Health and other schools and departments within our university.

Finances   We need to assess what our potential funding sources are, public and private, and how a policy center might be structured. What are the models we can turn to for lessons learned?
