In today’s complex and rapidly changing health care environment, the field of health systems, management, and policy is essential. Faced with making the delivery of care safer and more efficient, expanding health insurance coverage, and improving the performance of entire health systems, the field addresses the United States' most pressing health concerns.
Health systems, management, and policy is a multi-faceted field, and individuals work in a variety of disciplines that contribute to improving the quality, effectiveness, and value of care in our nation. Some of these disciplines include health services research, health economics, and health care management.
