Health Services Research and Implementation



Health Services Research (HSR) generates evidence to inform policy and practice, thereby improving the quality of health care service and delivery. The primary goals of health services research are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care and improve patient safety. Health services research and its translation to drive health systems improvement is a priority for Monash Partners and the Australian Health Research Alliance, comprising the NHMRC accredited Advanced Health Research Translation Centres (AHRTCs) and Centres for Innovation in Regional Health (CIRHs). A National steering committee has formed to lead AHRA’s collaboration, address key gaps, engage stakeholders and develop a national framework for ‘Health Systems Improvement and Sustainability’.
