Health services research seeks to assess, evaluate, and improve the delivery of health services. Public health seeks to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy, particularly with core functions to assess public health, develop policy and assure basic services. Critical overlapping issues include cost-containment, access to health care, quality of health care and ethics. Outcomes research, rural and underserved populations, minority health, and managed care involve issues of particular current concern. Methodological topics are sampled from community assessments, small area variations, qualitative research, quasi-experiments, evaluation research, policy analysis, cost-effectiveness, and surveys.
