Commonwealth Medicine was established in 1999 to provide a centralized structure for the groundbreaking public-sector work initiated by UMass Medical School faculty and staff.
These pioneering individuals sought opportunities to have a direct and profound impact on the people of Massachusetts. By reaching beyond the traditional boundaries of academia, they were able to launch research initiatives, training programs, and clinical services to achieve that goal.
Creating health care solutions
Their success led to the development of Commonwealth Medicine as UMass Medical School’s health care consulting division. And their approach continues to inform our wide array of public-sector initiatives, such as the following:
- Health care reform
- Health care financing
- Care management
- Laboratory services
