Health Systems research is about improving a health system’s efficiencies, effectiveness and accountability in order to provide quality services to patients. Research encompasses management perspectives including governance, resourcing, financial systems, performance, organizational behaviour, health informatics, decision support, clinical decision-making, expert systems, and systems analysis and development. A key aspect of health systems research is its interdisciplinary nature – it draws upon research methods and approaches from several fields. Its central objective is to train the next generation of researchers in applying innovative methodologies of scientific discovery to better understand health systems and support decision-making for the cost-effective delivery of health services. The Telfer core faculty researchers involved reflect the multidisciplinary character of the study issues, integrating expertise in health services, health administration, health economics, social science, management, operations research, computer science, and medicine.
