Health Services Research is the multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technologies, and personal behaviors affect access to health care, the quality and cost of health care, and ultimately our health and well-being. Its research domains are individuals, families, organizations, institutions, communities, and populations (Academy for Health Services Research and Health Policy, 2000).

The Health Services and Evaluation (HSRE) Initiative in KTPH aims to support management of diseases, organization and delivery of services, health economic analyses and financing of health care and population health analyses. In Sept 2013, the HSRE Focus Group was formed in Sept 2013 to help drive the HSRE Initiative in KTPH and AHS. This is a multidisciplinary team that comprises members from various clinical, allied health and administrative departments in KTPH. It develops strategic planning for development of HSRE and consolidates efforts in HSRE across KTPH and AHS.

To better support researchers in HSRE, resources can be found in the directory below. You may wish to contact the following staff for assistance.
