110 ILCS 430/5

(110 ILCS 430/5)
Sec. 5. Legislative intent. Illinois legislators and other governmental officials are charged with an increasingly complex task of creating and implementing laws and regulations to advance the health and health care of the people of Illinois. The challenge has grown because of escalating costs of health care that take an increasingly large share of State resources and because of the increasingly complex nature of treating illnesses that makes monitoring and ensuring quality more difficult.
As Illinois' statewide public institution of higher learning, with the nation's largest medical school, and graduate programs in health and public policy, health services research, pharmacy, public administration, and health economics, the University of Illinois has the breadth and depth of expertise as well as a mission to serve as an authoritative and objective information resource to the legislative branches of government and to State agencies.
