IHPI’s goals and priorities and its future as an institute are founded upon the substantial accomplishments in health services research and health policy that have distinguished the University of Michigan’s history over the last two centuries. Discover more in this timeline of significant milestones compiled from across the university and IHPI’s local partners.
Center for Eye Policy & Innovation (CEPI) is established
CEPI’s work spans many areas of health services research in ophthalmology, collaborating across the U-M and beyond using an interdisciplinary approach to address some of the most pressing issues facing patients and the delivery of eye care.
Center for Precision Health Data Science established
The Center’s mission is to democratize the use of big data to improve human health by disseminating user-friendly analytic and visualization tools for health researchers aspiring to reduce disease and improve health for the population and the patient.
The Pivot Hub is established at U-M
The overarching aim of the Preventing Harms through Discovery and Innovation (Pivot) Hub at the U-M School of Nursing is to revolutionize thinking around preventing healthcare-associated harm through training, collaboration with healthcare systems, and research.
Responding to COVID-19
IHPI researchers and clinicians have played a critical role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, building models to project virus spread and its impact on populations, developing clinical resources and guidelines for the frontlines of care, and creating data registries to better understand treatment outcomes.
