The Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) seeks to improve health and prevent disease and disability through the education of future public health leaders and through research on the causes and possible remedies of significant public health problems facing the U.S: and other industrialized countries. 

 

Areas of emphasis within the Department focus on:

  • The analysis of policy options and evaluation of the effects of policy changes on the health of individuals and populations;
  • Evaluation of alternative approaches to the organization, financing, and delivery of health care services and their impact on access, quality of care, patient outcomes, and cost;
  • Testing strategies for health education and behavioral risk reduction in individuals and populations;
  • Developing and evaluating models for community-based planning of preventive and health care services to improve access, appropriateness, and local accountability; and
  • Improving methods for measuring the health of populations and individuals, risks to health, and characteristics of health services provided to individuals and populations that reflect access to care as well as it's quality and cost.
