Health Services Research

Abt SRBI’s health services research experience includes surveys of patients and their families, and surveys of health care providers and administrators. The data we collect are used to support evaluations of initiatives to improve health care delivery quality and outcomes, develop and test health communication messages, and evaluate the cost of health care. We are experienced in the design and implementation of large-scale longitudinal studies, studies of clinical samples, sample development and recruitment, as well as registry and medical administrative record studies. Our surveys measure consumer attitudes and behaviors regarding health care providers and treatment for a multitude of conditions. We have designed and conducted surveys of health care providers that range from measuring attitudes and behaviors to evaluating the effectiveness of continuing education.
