Healthcare is a complex field. So is policy. Healthcare policy doubly so. Even long-time industry veterans don’t know everything. We created this healthcare encyclopedia so that you may easily look up relevant terms, acronyms, organizations, associations, departments, agencies, committees, bills, regulations, and more.
You can search for specific terms using the search field on the left just below the navigation bar, or you can simply browse alphabetically. Since we’re in the doubly complex field of healthcare policy, we have included some helpful legislative terms and definitions within each category.

We’re continually growing this resource. If there are specific topics or series of topics you’d like explained, or if you find errors or gaps in our entries, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll expand or update our resource accordingly.
