Projects

The Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies projects fall under three main categories:

• Healthcare Systems
• Population Health and Determinants
• Clinical Practice.

Examples of innovative projects are listed within each of these domains.

Healthcare System faculty examine outcomes, quality, and measurement of healthcare delivery systems with research and practice translation that spans from the individual clinic to hospital and healthcare systems. PRL-IHPS faculty have informed the development of value-based purchasing approaches and have undertaken cost and cost-effectiveness studies across a wide domain of conditions and systems both domestically and internationally. Healthcare system faculty also conduct research on the healthcare workforce with a particular focus on nursing and primary care providers. The Institute is particularly interested in ensuring that our healthcare system delivers appropriate care to at-risk populations including children and the elderly.
