Our Mission

Our goal is to help create conditions that enable physicians – and the organizations within which they work – to improve the health of individual patients and of the U.S. population while helping to constrain the growth of health care costs.

We pursue this goal by conducting and disseminating empirical research and by writing conceptual articles aimed at clarifying key issues and at informing public policies as well as the private policies created by health care organizations.

 

CPPL is funded by the Physicians Foundation, a non-profit organization seeking to empower physicians to lead in the delivery of high-quality, cost-efficient healthcare, and contributions by Weill Cornell Medicine, one of the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the U.S.
