Health Services is a broad area of research that focuses on understanding health disparities, patient outcomes, innovations of patient care, and competency-based education and interprofessional training.  Often the focus is on managing medically and socially complex older persons through care teams. Specific research areas look to improve understanding of general medical conditions, Alzheimer's disease, socioeconomic differences, and models of care to recommend improvements and a new methodology of understanding health issues across the geriatric population.
