Health Policy Topics web archive

Archived since: Jan, 2017

Description:

A growing collection of websites selected by the National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) of the National Library of Medicine, which focuses on the discussions surrounding possible changes, repeal, or reform of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Enacted in 2010, The Affordable Care Act has implications both for coverage and utilization of health care as well as the relationship of public health to the general health care system. With a change in the political administration in the White House and the Senate, a priority for the administration became a focus for the government. The websites examined in this collection will reflect the debates taking place in the government, and will have been influential in influencing the eventual decisions reached by the Government. Website captures began in late 2016, with the aim of capturing discussions of repeal/replace/revise conversations that will occur over the next following 4 years. The collection will focus on data, analyses, and proposed changes by highlighting websites, blogs, collections of white papers, reports, and news items from high-value analytic and policy sources. These sources reflect all political and value perspectives, to give the most concise picture of the debate.
