The Health Policy Forum has been tracking implementation of the Affordable Care Act through published research, media and government resources. In the coming months, we hope to launch a detailed study of insurance coverage in Texas. Additionally, with funding from the National Cancer Institute, we are completing manuscripts for a study of the cost-drivers of complex cancer surgery. Other projects include an analysis of regional variations of cancer treatment in Texas, a study of the effect of smoking bans on hospitalization rates, and a study of whether shared savings programs for physicians can reduce overall patient health care expenditures.
