- Merkin Initiative
The Brookings Institution recently launched the Dr. Richard Merkin Initiative—a project focused on empowering clinicians to have an active voice in health care payment and delivery reforms. The Merkin Initiative will provide clinicians with easy-to-use tools to learn more about reforms and give them an opportunity to have their voices be heard. Monthly updates will include video tutorials on payment and delivery reform; blog posts and other commentary from Merkin Initiative staff and experts within the field; a series of clinically based case studies highlighting various approaches to payment reform; and a massive open online course. Learn more about the Merkin Initiative and to sign up to receive regular updates.
