Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of health services. Evidence from hypothesis-testing studies is presented, either in the form of pilot projects or larger retrospective studies. This facilitates exchange of new information and approaches to assessing performance.

Epidemiological designs are encouraged in studies addressing:

  • patient outcomes
  • service utilization
  • adherence to guidelines
  • cost-control

We invite reports employing innovative approaches to the study of health services. This includes mixed methods studies, organizational case reports and rigorous analysis of online data sources.

Studies reporting unexpected findings that contradict common assumptions about the performance of health systems are sought.

Studies addressing contemporary problems in health services with relevance to health policy are invited. No topic of widespread interest and importance is off limits.

The audience for this exciting journal is clinical investigators and health services researchers who study patients for the purpose of improving the performance of health care delivery systems. Physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and managers will find the content relevant and useful to their daily concerns.
