More than twenty-five hundred agencies, institutions, and organizations are dedicated to researching, quantifying (measuring), monitoring, and improving health in the United States. Some are federally funded public entities such as the many institutes and agencies governed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Others are professional societies and organizations that develop standards of care, represent the views and interests of health care providers, and ensure the quality of health care facilities such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Still other voluntary health organizations such as the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and the March of Dimes promote research and education about prevention and treatment of specific diseases.
