Evaluation for Health Policy and Health Care: A Contemporary Data-Driven Approach

Welcome to the Companion Site!

This site is intended to enhance your use of Evaluation for Health Policy and Health Care by Steven Sheingold and Anupa Bir. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material.

This book explores the best practices and applications for producing, synthesizing, visualizing, using, and disseminating health care evaluation evidence and reports. This core, graduate-level text focuses on quantitative, qualitative, and meta-analytic approaches to analysis, providing a guide for both those executing evaluations and those using the data to make policy decisions. It is designed to provide real-world applications within health policy to make learning more accessible and relevant, and to highlight the remaining challenges for using evidence to develop policy.
