Health Services Research

Health Services Research (HSR) is the investigation of how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technologies and personal behaviors affect patient outcomes such as access to health care, the quality and cost of health care and health and well-being.

In the Clinical Pharmacy and Outcomes Sciences department, the goal of our health services research is to identify the most effective way to organize, manage, finance and deliver high quality care, reduce medical errors and improve patient safety.
