Research Evaluation Services
Program evaluation services, health economic analyses, and consultations
The Center for HOPES was established in 1994 to respond to the needs of health care policy decision-makers at local, state, and national levels. The Center for HOPES, which is located at OSU's College of Public Health, conducts applied health services research studies to help public and private organizations evaluate clinical effectiveness, quality of care, costs of medical services, process flow in health care institutions, and other investigations in the areas of health outcomes, policy, and evaluation. Our programs have a direct and strong impact on health care in both the private and public sectors at the local, state, and national levels.
