ll research undertaken by HSC shall be consistent with the organization's mission to inform health care decision and policy makers about changes in the health care system at both the local and national levels. Our research goal is to clarify the effects of such changes on people, with the ultimate goal of improving the health and health care of the American public.

To preserve HSC's reputation for high-quality, independent and nonpartisan research, nurtured and sustained during the long period when the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation was the sole source of support, HSC only accepts funding when it retains the right to publish all research results. Final research topic selection, methodological and editorial decisions ultimately reside with HSC.

Guided by these principles, HSC will seek research support from many different types of sources: governmental entities, foundations, and private nonprofit and for-profit organizations.

For questions or further information about supporting HSC research, contact Paul Ginsburg at (202) 484-5261.
