Uncovering ways to improve how we deliver care
Our research uses epidemiology, statistics and laboratory trials to uncover ways to improve how we deliver care. We examine all levels of healthcare delivery, from patient-provider interactions to federal policy regulations, and contribute to developing clinical practice improvements, reducing disparities and healthcare costs.
Our team consists of a broad range of health services researchers including physicians, nurses, psychologists, economists, IT programmers, biostatisticians, and public health professionals. Our researchers are collaborating across disciplines and in various real-life settings to answer a breadth of health care delivery issues, such as reducing hospital readmissions, reducing unnecessary medical care, and improving quality of life for patients with chronic medical conditions.
