A central concern in the health care system is the rising cost of services and the growing realization that resources are limited. The Sheps Center Program on Healthcare Economics and Finance focuses on both the general economics of personal health services as well as the specifics of program and organizational finance. In the former category, the Center’s emphasis is on issues of fair and effective distribution of resources, both public and private. In the financial sector, issues of efficiency and productivity in delivery units and targeted programs are examined.
