Founded in 2011, IHPI includes more than 400 health services researchers from across the University of Michigan and several nonprofit and private sector partners.
- IHPI's members form one of the nation's largest communities of physicians, health scientists and policy analysts dedicated to studying how health care works and how it can be improved.
- IHPI opened a headquarters at U-M's North Campus Research Complex to facilitate even greater collaboration among researchers and their staff and trainees.
- In all, about 650 IHPI members, staff and trainees are located in IHPI space at NCRC. There is room for collaboration and touchdown space for IHPI members who work at other locations. Core services for data management and research methodology development are important features of IHPI.
- IHPI includes members from more than 30 research groups, focusing on issues ranging from kidney and heart disease to surgical care, children's health and mental health.
About 85% of IHPI members have their primary appointment on the U-M faculty. About 54 percent of members hold faculty appointments in the U-M Medical School, where IHPI is based, with nearly every clinical department represented. Another 19 percent are faculty in the School of Public Health.
