Center for the Business of Healthcare
The global healthcare industry is experiencing fundamental transformation as it moves from a volume-based business to a value-based business. With increasing demands from consumers for enhanced healthcare quality and increased value, healthcare providers and payers are under pressure to deliver better outcomes. At the same time, cost dynamics of healthcare are changing, driven by people living longer, the pervasiveness of chronic illnesses, infectious diseases, and defensive medical practices. In short, healthcare delivery is increasing in complexity and competitiveness.
The purpose of the Center for the Business of Healthcare is to serve as a catalyst for harnessing the cross-disciplinary intellectual resources at the University of Oklahoma to improve the efficient and effective delivery of healthcare and serve the greater good of Oklahoma and the nation.
