Enhancing health care delivery and quality through rigorous scientific research.

NORC’s Health Sciences team strives to improve health care delivery and quality by conducting rigorous research in diverse, real-world settings. We work with clients to develop and test field-based interventions designed to improve care delivery, disseminate and implement successful evidence-based programs, and engage stakeholders to enhance quality, efficiency, and patient outcomes.

We bring expertise in health informatics, patient-centered outcomes research and implementation science. We couple this with innovative survey and data collection methods to produce rich data sets from representative and diverse populations throughout the life course.
