The mission of the Evidence-Based Healthcare Management Unit (EHMU) is to generate knowledge and evidence that is necessary for the effective and efficient application of management principles within the healthcare industry.
The unit’s vision is to become a facilitating hub in the region for knowledge generation and service improvement using evidence-based healthcare management.
EMHU is a cross-disciplinary research unit based in the Faculty of Medicine (FM) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) and includes members from Olayan School of Business (OSB), Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS), Hariri School of Nursing (HSON), Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (FEA), and the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC). Launched in 2010, EHMU aims to contribute to the development and improvement and strengthening of management and leadership in healthcare settings through the promotion of evidence-based decision making both academically and practically.
Our mission and vision are aligned with AUB’s inter-disciplinary focus as well as AUBMC’s 2020 Vision to improve the delivery of healthcare. We do so through collaborations among faculty members with different areas of expertise to promote the replacement of conventional wisdom in managerial decision making with research-based facts that lead to better informed decisions at both the strategic and tactical levels.
