BU, Boston Medical grant focuses on Mass. health reform
Researchers at Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine have received a $5.7 million grant to study the impact of the Massachusetts health reform initiative on cardiovascular care and outcomes.
The four-year, $5.7 million grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute will create the Center for Health Insurance Reform, Cardiovascular Outcomes and Disparities. The center will work to better understand the effects of Massachusetts health reform on cardiovascular care and outcomes, and to address the question of whether expanded insurance coverage can be associated with improved cardiovascular outcomes.
