Health Policy & Management

Program on Critical Care Health Policy and Management

The mission of the Program on Critical Care Health Policy & Management is to improve the quality and efficiency of critical care through health services research, policy analysis and education. The program brings together health services researchers, biostatisticians and health economists throughout the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences to study the organization, management, financing and delivery of critical care in the United States. In addition to our funded research projects, program investigators, post-doctoral fellows and students conduct a variety of internally supported research studies investigating the relationship between ICU organization and outcome at the national, state and local level. The program also oversees the University of Pittsburgh CTSI’s Comparative Effectiveness Research Data Center, a secure analytic computing research using large, public health datasets.
