Back to Success Stories

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has used Center expertise to draft policies based on high-quality evidence and experience.

In 2020, the state launched its We Treat Hep C initiative, collaborating  with the Center’s SMART-D team to support this multi-agency drug purchasing and public health effort. The Center team worked with state staff to develop unified efforts to screen and treat Michigan residents in the most cost-effective manner, and developed procurement plans to ensure value-based purchasing. The Center assisted Michigan’s Medicaid program with remote patient monitoring (RPM), eConsult, and other asynchronous telemedicine policies during the COVID-19 public health emergency, ensuring the state had access to the best information and practice for these policies.

Creating effective policy is hard work

Partner with the Center and do more for the good of all.
