University Medical Care Programs: Evaluation.
Densen, Paul M.; And Others
The increasing number of medical centers involved in collaborative and innovative health services in the community is but one reflection of social concerns and pressures for change in the health care system. Medical schools and their affiliated teaching hospitals are trying in various ways to adapt their teaching, research, and service functions to these concerns. With the intent of exploring how a number of medical centers are approaching these problems, the Harvard Center for Community Health and Medical Care in the spring of 1970 sponsored an Invitational Conference on the Evaluation of University Medical Care Programs. The conference brought together representatives of 6 medical schools with comprehensive medical care plans, as well as people with special backgrounds in medical care, economics, prepaid health care plans, and program evaluation. The specific thrust of the conference centered around how each of the participating medical schools are proposing to evaluate their particular medical care plan. This document presents the papers and discussions that took place at the conference. (Author/HS)
