The Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy

The mission of Duke University's Robert J. Margolis, MD, Center for Health Policy is to improve health and the value of health care by developing and implementing evidence-based policy solutions locally, nationally, and globally.

Duke-Margolis brings together capabilities that generate and analyze evidence across the spectrum of policy to practice, supporting the triple aim of health care – improving the experience of care, the health of populations and reducing the per capita cost.  This requires broad multidisciplinary capabilities that few institutions can bring together, and is fueled by Duke University’s entrepreneurial culture.

The Center integrates the expertise of Duke University scholars and academic health system with an established team experienced in convening stakeholders and conducting policy analysis.  The Center is a catalyst, linking Duke’s world-class research and health care with policymakers and policy analysts in the public and private sector at the local, national and global levels. Disciplines involved in Center include business, biomedical research, clinical care, public policy, population health, global health, law, the social sciences, and the humanities.
