pieces of a jigsaw puzzle

Outcomes research seeks to understand the specific contribution of particular health care practices and interventions. It involves study design, critical review, implement/measurement and analyze health outcomes studies. The scope of outcomes research ranges from studies evaluating the effectiveness of a particular intervention, the development and use of tools to perform patient-based assessments, to the impact of economic policies of the outcomes of care.
