Prof. Stephen Parente on board of new Health Care Cost Institute

The Health Care Cost Institute, a new and unprecedented health research initiative will transform the study of U.S. health care spending. The institute will allow researchers and policymakers access to a comprehensive collection of health plan and government payer data. Access to this data will offer new insights into health care costs, utilization and intensity.

Professor Stephen Parente will be one of seven members of the governing board comprised of independent national physician leaders and academic researchers.
