The health care industry faces growing imperatives to improve the quality, effectiveness, and value of care. These imperatives drive our need to measure and improve health outcomes, and to demonstrate the improvements to consumers, providers, and policymakers. In September 1998, we created the Program on Health Outcomes (PHO) at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to meet that need in partnership with other organizations and individuals in the health care industry.
The PHO is a resource within UNC where government and private health organizations can obtain expertise in health outcomes for a wide range of applications. The PHO capitalizes on the critical mass of skills and resources in outcomes research across UNC, the UNC Health Care System, and outside partners.
