The Program in Health Economics, Management, and Policy (PHEMP) was organized to respond to issues and problems facing one of the largest, most complex, and most controversial sectors in the United States: the health care and health-related industries. PHEMP's mission is to foster the development of interdisciplinary research, teaching, and service programs related to health economics and finance, health care management, and health care policy formulation and evaluation.
PHEMP AND THE CAMPUS HEALTH INITIATIVE
PHEMP is the coordinating unit for a campuswide effort to develop and implement an interdisciplinary research and training program focusing on health care delivery and financing. The Campus Health Initiative provides the infrastructure necessary to support cooperative, in-depth research and teaching on a broad array of health care-related management, policy, and financing issues. The initiative builds on the existing resources, interests, and expertise of the cooperating units, including ongoing teaching and research programs in such areas as insurance reform, health care financing, environmental health, maternal and child health, health management, women's health, rural health care delivery, and the role of technology in medicine, as well as clinical programs in medicine and nursing. A major objective of the initiative is to focus on issues of interest to the government, business community, and citizens of the state of Illinois.
Five broad topic areas have been identified to serve as the basis for the teaching and research agenda of the Campus Health Initiative.
