National Governors Association launches health policy resource site

A new website launched this week by the National Governors Association aims to make it easier for policymakers in different states to find resources that can guide them in the creation of future health policies.

The site--dubbed State Health Policy Options--provides users with a library that includes various state policies and case studies of different state efforts, as well as descriptions of federal regulations and grant opportunities that are available. The site also provides a list of expert sources to whom policymakers can reach out for advice.

"This website is designed to give states a place to find information on a variety of healthcare problems they might be facing," Dan Crippen, NGA executive director, said in a statement. "Our hope is that this virtual resource center will give states unlimited ideas on how to solve their individual healthcare problems." Announcement
