About the Center


The UC San Diego Health Services Research Center (HSRC)  is a comprehensive research center established in 1989 to provide practical solutions for real world health services problems in order to improve health outcomes and quality of life. HSRC resides in the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science.


Our diverse and multidisciplinary staff of over 30 researchers, programmers, and program evaluators have both rigorous academic training and in-depth experience in the fields of public health, clinical and applied psychology, health outcomes measurement, program evaluation, medical research informatics, and health economics. The HSRC research team specializes in executing most aspects of research (except basic science and wet-lab services).  


Services include data collection, data processing and management, data analysis, program evaluation and implementation, health economic analysis, development of secure web-based informatics systems, clinical trial administration and management, sports and performance research, development and validation of measurement tools, dissemination of results, grant writing, study design and project planning.


Since its beginnings, HSRC placed focus on using and developing technologies for gathering and analyzing research data, including electronic medical record integration and our Mental Health Outcomes Management System (mHOMS), a high-powered electronic data collection, analysis, and reporting system with a wide array of applications for projects in medical research and beyond.
