Health Care Delivery and Policy

Health Care Delivery and Policy research aims to improve how the health system works, and the care patients receive. Investigators in our section conduct studies that can help individual physicians and large integrated systems learn the best way to support their patients and encourage them to make informed health care decisions. We also conduct research that can help operational leaders and clinicians improve population health by choosing the most effective approaches to care delivery.

Our research is used to improve patients’ health and the quality, safety, and effectiveness of health care systems, manage health care costs, and guide health care policies. Our work explores the geographic, gender, ethnic, and racial disparities in health and health care, with the goal of not only identifying obstacles and barriers to care but identifying solutions that can overcome them. We look at how social factors, insurance status, organizational structures and processes, health technologies, and individual behaviors affect who accesses care, how they access care, and the care they receive.
