Veterans Affairs Health Services Research and Development

[VA HSR&D]

School

VA Puget Sound Health Care System

Department

Division

Description

The mission of our COIN is to conduct high quality health services research that promotes Veteran-centered and value-driven care, generate and disseminate knowledge that contributes to the well-being of Veterans, work collaboratively with VA policy and operational leaders to implement research findings into clinical care, and train the next generation of health services researchers and leaders.

We have two primary research focus areas that concentrate on Veterans with complex chronic conditions. 

Our first research area is to promote veteran-centered care by improving the patient experience across community and healthcare settings by:

  • Improving self-management skills through research targeting patients across community and healthcare settings
  • Improving health status of patients using principles of palliative care
  • Improving patient experiences through interventions targeting providers and the healthcare system


Our second research focus area is to advance the science of providing Veterans the highest quality medical care at the lowest financial burden by:

  • Identifying high value VA facilities and the processes and structure that they employ
  • Comparing the effectiveness of alternate ways of delivering high value care
  • Developing new methods to quantify value

We are currently developing two new emerging areas that include addressing barriers to delivery of specialty care across community and healthcare settings and assessing the effect of screening studies on patient experiences and the value of these studies to VA.
