About HBHI

The Hopkins Business of Health Initiative is a new collaborative initiative between Johns Hopkins University’s Carey Business School and its three world-leading health schools – the Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Nursing, and School of Medicine – to integrate research, practice, and policy to improve the productivity of the nation’s health system.

This new initiative will ensure that Johns Hopkins University plays a leading role in transforming our national health system into the most productive and admired health system in the world.

Ultimately, HBHI will focus on the business of health by prioritizing:

  1. Collaborative, multidisciplinary research applying business principles to address the nation’s health system challenges;
  2. Testing and scaling novel approaches for firms and organizations to advance health and slow health spending growth; and
  3. Identifying cost-effective health interventions and the pathways to scale innovation through alignment of financial incentives and social value.
