Hope Schau, Director, CHCMP

As the health care industry undergoes dramatic changes, the Center for Health Care Management & Policy (CHCMP) is a source of important knowledge and information for leaders and those who want to move into leadership roles.

Established in 1988 by Professor Paul Feldstein to conduct and disseminate research on key health policy issues at the national, state and local levels, our mission was to provide a forum through which those key issues were discussed among scholars, the business community, government and other key stakeholders.

Since that time, our marquee event has become the annual Health Care Forecast Conference that started in 1992. The conference serves as a unique venue for dialogue among government, business leaders, and academics that share their perspectives and forecasts on key economic and political issues impacting the health care industry.

Today, our mission is to build stronger ties with the health care community in Orange County and beyond by engaging our partners in collaborative research and education efforts as well as community service programs.

Our current activities are in two main areas:

  1. Organizing conferences and other events to disseminate research findings and to promote discussion of health policy issues
  2. Contributing to the health care focus within UCI’s MBA programs
