Research Centers

Health Systems Analytics Research Center (HSARC)

HSARC is a collaboration between the Louisiana Public Health Institute and the Tulane University Department of Global Health Management and Policy. This center has the capacity to design, collect, and analyze statistical data and the strategic expertise to define how those analytic outcomes can be applied given the context of our multi-level health care system. 

The HSARC mission is to improve the per­for­mance and effi­ciency of health sys­tems through a sys­tem­atic analy­sis of health data related to human, tech­no­log­i­cal, and social fac­tors affect­ing health outcomes. By doing so, we can:

  1. Inform evidence-based decision making in clinical settings, health policy, and health systems.
  2. Collaborate with our sponsors to assist them in navigating the strategic options available in light of analytic conclusions.
  3. Develop com­mu­nity part­ner­ships to advance trans­la­tional research using data from health care orga­ni­za­tions, infor­ma­tion exchanges, insur­ance claims, and health ser­vices oper­a­tions.
  4. Pro­vide pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment and train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for junior researchers and stu­dents at Tulane Uni­ver­sity and other edu­ca­tional institutions.
  5. Pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for experts from dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines (aca­d­e­mic, pol­icy and clin­i­cal researchers) to work col­lab­o­ra­tively on issues related to health data analy­sis and its implications.
