Legislative Brief: Health and Healthcare Workforce-Related Bills

Wesley Epplin
April 26, 2016
An important part of health reform is health workforce policy reform which can help clinicians safely provide care at the top of their license and that new health workforce categories are integrated into health and healthcare systems.

As part of our Health Workforce Initiative, Health & Medicine tracks state legislation that is related to health workforce reform.  Here is the May 23 publication of this report.  This link will be updated as updated reports are produced.

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview for government officials and health advocates of pending bills and public acts from the State of Illinois General Assembly that relate to the health and healthcare workforce during the Spring 2016 session.  Each bill is linked to the tracking page on the Illinois General Assembly website, so readers can see updates about progress and upcoming committee hearings.

This is a selection of legislation and is not meant to be inclusive of all legislation that is related to the health and healthcare workforce.  

We welcome feedback and ideas of other bills to include in future iterations of this report.  We’ll also be sharing updates throughout the remainder of the legislative session.  Feel free to email me at with any thoughts or questions.
