The VA Health Services Research and Development Service (HSR&D) pursues research that underscores all aspects of VA healthcare: patient care, care delivery, health outcomes, cost, and quality. HSR&D research also addresses critical issues for Veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan with conditions that may require care over their lifetimes. Within VA HSR&D, researchers focus on identifying and evaluating innovative strategies that lead to accessible, high quality, cost-effective care for Veterans and the nation.
