PROGRAMME IN HEALTH SERVICES AND SYSTEMS RESEARCH (HSSR)
Healthcare providers globally and in Singapore are focusing on population-level health outcomes, value for money and integrating services across social, primary and acute sectors. While person-centred care will always be important there is a need to demonstrate that high performing health systems are meeting the challenges of populations.
The Programme in Health Services & Systems Research (HSSR) in Duke-NUS Medical School has been a leader in the study of health systems and services for the population in Singapore and beyond. Key goals have been to show whether services are effective, appropriate, scalable and economically sustainable.
We facilitate and advance a multi-disciplinary research agenda by actively engaging the government, regional health systems and social service organizations. Our research methods include implementation science, health economics, decision science, survey/qualitative research, quantitative medicine, epidemiology, and data science.
