Public health and Epidemiology Week 9 Dis 1
Epidemiology is also a tool that allows you to compare the health outcomes in different locations. This makes it possible to adapt existing protocols to suit your needs. For example, this might involve comparing different immunization programs or creating more specific initiatives based on what has worked. Studies on the costs of certain procedures or treatments can provide insight as to where the best resources are allocated, so quality care can be provided without excessive expense.
Epidemiological methods can be used to assess various aspects of health services, from the treatment offered to the allocation of resources. These methods allow us to better understand the current situation and create efficient plans for moving forward. This ultimately results in improved outcomes for all parties.
