research presentationsHSA’s mission of developing leaders to shape tomorrow’s healthcare has deep roots in our research and scholarly activities. Knowledge created from our research is then used in our classrooms, to influence and shape policy and to improve healthcare practice. Our unique blend of interdisciplinary health services research brings together health administration, informatics, quality and safety, simulation and a variety of methods such as implementation, health, and data science as well as econometrics to create synergies that allow us to amplify our impact on healthcare.

Our faculty collaborate with stakeholders from across the healthcare spectrum, and engage our alumni and students in practice and policy-relevant research every day. Our research focuses on solving problems today as well as producing evidence that support future studies and policy for tomorrow.
