As we've discussed at length so far, much of health care reform deals directly with insurance and the idea that more people should be covered. However, I might argue that what we care about in the end are health outcomes - health is wealth. A paper came out in NEJM earlier this month from Ben Sommers, Atul Gawande, and Kate Baicker that reviewed existing evidence on the relationship between health insurance coverage and health outcomes (goo.gl/cwJXoA). In short, the relationship is a complicated picture. Often, a message is warped or even completely lost in it's journey from NEJM to the Senate floor. How is a policymaker to use nuanced evidence to inform policy, especially on issues relating insurance coverage to health? As researchers, what role can we play in translating complex evidence to something easily digestible by non-researchers and the public?
