We have extensive experience tailoring our data collection efforts to the specific needs of public health surveillance, epidemiological studies, health services research, and program and policy evaluation. Our health studies with both general and rare populations demonstrate our understanding of the survey dynamic and the importance of aligning data collection implementation with analytic needs.
