On June 14-15, 2018, the Center for Health Administration Studies co-hosted, with the Sciences Po Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP), a multi-day conference in Paris, France at the University of Chicago’s Center in Paris campus. The Sciences Po-University of Chicago Workshop on Health Policy Innovation and Reform conference brought together health policy researchers and scholars from the U.S. and France to share their most recent work in a deliberately comparative and collaborative context. The underlying assumption was that there are sizeable potential gains in knowledge growth and policy innovation that can result from such a systematic, scientific exchange of ideas. Research and evaluation in both countries has contributed to reforms in health and social service policy. The process by which social science research and evaluation influences health policy innovation and reform was the focus of the conference.
Topics addressed in this year’s Workshop included science-based policy innovation and reform, improving access through health insurance and service innovation, prevention, social investment and regulation.
