About the Center

The UC San Diego Health Services Research Center
  is a non-profit research organization within the UC San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science. 

Our research team specializes in the measurement, collection and analysis of health outcomes data to help improve health care delivery systems and, ultimately, to improve patient quality of life. HSRC has done important work over the years in developing validated measures for studying patient quality of life and quality of well-being.

Measurement instruments developed by HSRC researchers have been invaluable in providing clinical investigators throughout the world valid, reliable and meaningful tools to study health outcomes and quality of life. HSRC-developed instruments are used to study a wide range of areas including diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, cataracts, mental health diagnoses, including schizophrenia, and physical and mental health integration.

Since its beginnings, HSRC has been on the cutting edge of new technologies for gathering and analyzing research data, from developing Computer Aided Telephone Interviewing (CATI) systems for large scale, real-time telephone interview data capture, to our most recent work on the Health Outcomes Management System (HOMS), a high powered data collection, analysis, and reporting system with a wide array of applications for projects in medical research and beyond.
