Community & public health benefits (Health care characteristics)


Improved provision and distribution of health services to a patient population. Delivery systems typically include healthcare providers, insurers, and government regulators. Health care delivery is measured in terms of cost, method of payment, regulation, and quality of care.


Effective and efficient mechanisms to deliver health services to a target population require transdisciplinary collaboration and widen the impact of evidence-based medicine and health practices.
