Independence and Methodology

UNMC commissioned an independent third party, Tripp Umbach, to conduct this economic impact study. Tripp Umbach has conducted more than 300 customized economic impact studies for major corporations, health care organizations, universities, medical schools, and health insurance companies. Tripp Umbach has provided economic impact analysis for every medical school and teaching hospital in the United States in partnership with the AAMC since 1995.

To fully quantify the impact of UNMC within the state of Nebraska throughout this study, Tripp Umbach established a comprehensive, yet conservative, methodology to estimate the operational impact based on information compiled using uniform and consistent techniques that could be replicated in the future. Economic impact was calculated using the American Council on Education methodology and multipliers to complete this linear-cash flow based economic impact study. UNMC supplied the data used in this study and FY 13-14 figures were used for all inputs. All impacts are presented in 2014 dollars.
