New Healthcare Models

The future of health care requires new models of care that improve health and contain costs. Our work examines emerging models of care, identifies the most promising models, and supports the successful spread of care model innovations. 

Why is Researching New Health Care Models Important?

Transformation is occurring at every stage of the health care system from delivery to payment methods. As a result, the healthcare workforce is evolving quickly. New models help organizations understand and develop every level of health care worker to meet the ever-changing needs of patients.
