Effective delivery of health care extends from the laboratory to the homes of patients. Our research is designed to enhance our understanding of this process and thus to improve the care that patients actually use, including new methods of accessing care by interested parties. A key component is also to understand policy and financial factors that influence how care is provided. Specific aspects of the research program include:
1. evaluating and improving technical quality of care, including skills and competencies
2. understanding patient-centered factors that affect care use
3. developing methods of measuring and improving care that are easily accessible and usable
4. investigating the role of new technology and decision support systems in improving care
5. assessing the impact of financial and structural features on care
