Panels and Networks - Rural Health Panel

The RUPRI Rural Health Panel was established in 1993 to provide science-based, objective policy analysis to federal policy makers. While panel members are drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and bring varied experiences to the analytical enterprise, panel documents reflect the consensus judgment of all panelists.

The Panelís analysis of the Medicare Modernization Act has been the premier document for policy makers interested in improving that legislation. The Panelís work will provide guidance to national policy makers wanting to implement IOM recommendations.
