Evaluating initiatives to improve the quality of health care

Evaluation of healthcare policy and related initiatives aims to help policy makers improve the analysis underlying their choices. Along with the Evaluation and Performance Audit team at RAND Europe, CCHSR supports informed judgements and improved decision making. We work across a range of topical disciplines and use mixed methods of enquiry involving both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Our evaluation work involves a continuum of perspectives from ex ante to ex post evaluations and reviews. Our work can be organised into four broad areas of expertise: programme and project evaluations, value for money (VFM) studies, impact assessments, and strategic reviews.
