Program Lead: Susan Bronskill
Program Coordinator:

Clinically trained health services researchers join with experts in statistics, economics, finance and policy analysis to study a broad array of issues, including pay-for-performance and public reporting; end-of-life health care spending; the development of physician networks and integrated care initiatives and transitions in care. Program scientists examine service quality in emergency departments, long-term care, pediatric facilities and chronic care hospitals and for high needs populations across the age spectrum.
