Health Services Research

Health services research is the multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technology, and personal behaviors affect access to health care, quality and cost of health care, and ultimately our health and well-being. 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. Many Hopkins GIM faculty are experts in health services research, with interests organized around specific content areas.

Information about the faculty working in this research area and their projects is provided below.
