Health Policy Initiative

In a time of heightened concern over our healthcare delivery, we are searching for efficient and innovative solutions.

The healthcare delivery system touches the entire US population, constituting one-third of our GDP. With a challenging lack of resources allocated to public health, levels of concern over the efficiency, innovation and economic viability of health care delivery channels continue to rise. 

At the School, we are dedicated to researching the consequential aspects of the US healthcare system, from the health exchanges and the systems through which health services for individuals and communities are financed, to the security and integrity of electronic health records and large data collections that support health system access and portability.

As policy experts, we have a unique perspective to offer the healthcare system. Innovation in all aspects of healthcare involve interaction between the privately-run insurance and service delivery sectors, and government departments charged with ensuring universal access and service quality. Through collaborations within the School and with external institutions, we seek to discover efficient and innovative solutions to emerging challenges for healthcare delivery and for the integrity of the sector as a whole.
