The ModelHealth family of models
HealthPartners Institute’s health economics team began working on economic models in 1999. These models have been used in many ways to inform policy and medical decision-making. The work has grown to include a family of models known as HealthPartners Institute’s ModelHealth microsimulation models. These models address conditions such as obesity, tobacco use, colorectal and cervical cancers, sexually transmitted diseases and cardiovascular disease. We conduct analyses for the U.S. Prevention Services Task Force and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Value ranking of clinical preventive services
Under the support of the National Commission on Prevention Priorities, we published our third ranking of recommended preventive services in 2017. These nationally influential rankings show the greatest benefit for health and value in terms of cost-effectiveness. Previous rankings published in 2001 and 2006 helped better align preventive services with value.
