The Health Services Research (HSR) Initiative established in FY 2019, provides intramural and extramural HSR in topic areas directed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs.
The HSR Initiative studies how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technologies, and personal behaviors affect access to healthcare in terms of quality, costs, plus health and well-being. Researchers study how to integrate epidemiologic, sociologic, economic, and other analytic sciences to understand the relationships between need, demand, supply, use, and outcomes of healthcare.
