October 12, 2017 -- The Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute has received a five-year grant for $3.7 million from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support musculoskeletal clinical research.

The funds will be used to establish a Core Center for Clinical Research, which will be called the Clinical Learning, Effectiveness and Research (CLEAR) Center. Based at the University of Washington and led by Dr. Jeffrey Jarvik, the CLEAR Center will seek to catalyze multi-institutional collaborations by improving methods for conducting clinical musculoskeletal studies and by providing data for scientific investigators, according to the institute.

As a research partner of the CLEAR Center, the Neiman Institute will make its data holdings available to investigators. This includes files from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that contain all fee-for-service claims for a 5% national sample of Medicare beneficiaries.
