How do we reduce health disparities? Improve preventive and chronic care systems for vulnerable populations? Create financial incentives for health systems improvement?

The esteemed research team in Health Policy and Administration at Penn State is dedicated to addressing these pressing questions — and many more related topics of interest.

By applying approaches from health economics, health management, and population health, our industry-leading experts leverage the many vibrant research centers and consortia at Penn State — including Center for Health Care and Policy Research, Center for Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems, Prevention Research Center, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and Population Research Institute — to provide insight into how to improve the quality, availability, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare services while also reducing health disparities at the local, national, and international levels.
