The Health Care Management Division is dedicated to understanding the role of professionals and organizations in providing health care both locally and internationally. Health care management research is a rapidly growing field in need of active scholars. It is a rich research environment, with data available on thousands of organizations and millions of leaders, managers, employees, professionals and customers.
Major focuses of research by divisional members include: the performance of health care workers and organizations; public policy issues, such as access to care, competition, cost control and quality of care, and their implications for managing health care organizations; health care finance and marketing; and empirical or conceptual application of theory to the study of health care organizations, even on topics that might also fall within another division's domain.
