UND plans health care analysis unit
GRAND FORKS — The University of North Dakota is developing a new agency that it says would help analyze the effectiveness of health care in the state.
The Center for Comparative Effectiveness Analytics would start this fall if the university gets approval from the State Board of Higher Education. It goes before the Academic and Student Affairs Committee on Thursday.
Documentation submitted to the committee says the center would be “an entrepreneurial model” using a partnership of academic, industry and government groups to respond to industry trends. At UND, it would reorganize faculty into new research programs and coordinate research with North Dakota State University.
The center would use existing UND resources at first but would support itself with grants and contracts over time.
