Products|Using the health- and social-system building blocks

 
Many of our products feature evidence and insights on how the health-system building blocks are used to provide: services in a range of sectors; services for select conditions or groupings of conditions; services using select treatments or technologies; care for select populations. Many also feature evidence and insights on how the social-system building blocks provide programs and services in a broad range of areas (e.g., community and social services, culture and gender, economic development and growth, education, and transportation). Our rapid syntheses, evidence briefs, and citizen briefs highlight the best available evidence about key issues related to how the health- and social-system building blocks are used, while our dialogue summaries, panel summaries, and videos of interviews with dialogue participants capture evidence-informed insights about these issues. Read our products below for evidence and insights about how the health- and social-system building blocks are used to provide care, programs and services.
