The Center for Minority Health Services Research was founded in 2002 and is housed in the School of Pharmacy at Howard University. We are currently funded by the DHHS-Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The mission purpose of this Center is to conduct health services research and outcomes research, particularly as to how it affects minority populations. Additionally, the mission of the Center is to focus on areas of health care that have been identified as Health Disparity concerns. Faculty from the School of Pharmacy, Division of Nursing, Division of Allied Health, and College of Medicine form a core of experienced and diverse researchers who strive to add valuable information to the body of knowledge. Currently, the Center is focused on developing projects and conducting analyses in the areas of HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease and the aging population
Health Services Research examines how people get access to healthcare, how much health care costs, and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The main goals of Health Care Services Research are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care; reduce medical errors; and improve patient safety.
