Investigator Initiated Research

What do we do?

HSR also engages in research that aims to seek deeper insights into key strategic areas. The team also provides consultative support to other researchers and clinicians, from research question formulation to data analysis as co-investigators in competitive grant applications. Our key areas of research include outcomes research, health economics, discrete event simulation, optimisation modelling, and predictive analytics.
