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:
- Inform evidence-based decision making in clinical settings, health policy, and health systems.
- Collaborate with our sponsors to assist them in navigating the strategic options available in light of analytic conclusions.
- Develop community partnerships to advance translational research using data from health care organizations, information exchanges, insurance claims, and health services operations.
- Provide professional development and training opportunities for junior researchers and students at Tulane University and other educational institutions.
- 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.
