Analysis of the Michigan ME System Workgroup Report

In December of 2015, the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) contracted with the Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI) to convene a diverse workgroup of stakeholders to identify capacity and potential areas of improvement within the current medical examiner (ME) system in Michigan, consider its strengths and weaknesses, and determine potential improvements that could be recommended to bolster the system. The resulting An Analysis of the Michigan Medical Examiner's System report was published in 2016.
