The Research Institute for Health Outcomes (RIHO) studies the economics of health care. Through inter-disciplinary groups of faculty, students and other collaborators, RIHO seeks to answer questions such as:

  • What are the costs of specific new medical interventions and how do they affect patients and others who pay for health care, including insurance companies, managed care organizations and the government?
  • Does health care spending bring the most value for the dollar?
  • Which medical interventions are best for the patient and what are the end results of that care?

The College expanded its name from 'Albany College of Pharmacy' to 'Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences' on October 16, 2008 to better reflect its range of degree programs.
