What is Health Policy and Management?
Health policy involves the decisions, plans, and actions undertaken by public and private organizations and governmental bodies to influence and improve individual and public health and health care through the achievement of specific goals. Health administration is focused on leadership and management of healthcare organizations and systems. These two areas work hand-in-hand to ensure that the health policies developed can be effectively implemented in the healthcare system. Our faculty’s research in areas such as the impact of changes in the Affordable Care Act has been influential as legislators, policy makers, healthcare providers, administrators, payers, and consumers navigate the complex evolving healthcare system.
