Mission and Vision
HRET's goal is to advance ideas and practices beneficial to health care practitioners, institutions, consumers and society at large. Its principal activities focus on identifying, exploring, demonstrating and evaluating key strategic health care issues affecting innovative health care delivery systems, educating the field about the implications of changing health policies and developing strategies for community health improvement.
Through its affiliation with the American Hospital Association, HRET accesses valuable resources, data and thought leadership. Yet it maintains the autonomy needed to examine issues independently and objectively. HRET's independent board and partners contribute significantly to the "brain trust" established at HRET.
HRET's agenda is focused on performing research and developing educational materials to:
Enhance community health
Expand health coverage and access
Improve patient safety and health delivery systems
Develop and publish innovative research
Explore and communicate fresh ideas and best practices
Encourage and acknowledge research through fellowships and awards
