New York – The Center for Healthcare Management and Columbia University’s Department of Health Policy & Management (HPM) at the Mailman School of Public Health recently signed an affiliation agreement.
As a leader in healthcare management research, the Center has worked hand-in-hand with social scientists, mathematicians, political scientists, and data management experts to apply evaluation research to medical and management oriented innovations. With a distinguished network of leading academics and practitioners, the Center has been assessing the performance of innovations, validating measurements, and implementing change with the goal of creating high-performing healthcare systems and organizations since 2010.
Joint initiatives of the affiliation relate to research, education, and other scholarly activities. Specific areas of common interest include
- The Center’s unique expertise in healthcare management, which will support HPM’s vision to establish a research cluster in that area.
- The Center’s cross-national orientation and collaboration with experts in numerous healthcare systems, which will enhance HPM’s international orientation and enable joint initiatives with respect to healthcare reform and practice implementation.
- The Center’s work in evaluation of real-world medical and management interventions, which will contribute to HPM’s plans to expand its work in implementation and systems science.
- The Center’s activities in non-degree management executive education programs in Europe, which should offer further areas for collaboration to train healthcare leaders cross-nationally in the future.
The Center for Healthcare Management will continue to operate its European base and act as a Columbia University research center based in Europe.
