CNA Health Research and Policy provides incisive, high-quality research and analysis to support our clients’ efforts to improve health care delivery and their use of health care resources.
CNA’s Health Research and Policy (HRP) group includes 30 professional staff with backgrounds in economics, public health, public policy, epidemiology, sociology, psychology, and clinical medicine. Eighty percent of our team members have advanced degrees.Our goal is to aid government health care programs and the military and veterans’ health systems in their efforts to make health care more effective and efficient through the application of rigorous analysis and the development of innovative solutions. We collaborate closely with our clients to identify the goals and objectives of the project and the specific questions/issues to be addressed, and we provide an independent, objective approach to developing analytical plans, conducting analyses, interpreting results, and proposing recommendations. We do this while continuously communicating progress and preliminary findings to our clients.
