Health Services Research
"Health services research examines how people get access to health care, how much care costs, and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The main goals of health services research are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care; reduce medical errors; and improve patient safety."
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 2002
In the VA, Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D) works to identify and evaluate innovative strategies that lead to accessible, high quality cost-effective care for Veterans and the nation.
Funding for health services research is available through the VA and other resources on an episodic basis.
