The objective of health research is to improve the health status and well-being of individuals and populations. Depending on the health research type, knowledge related to health (disease) and/or healthcare can be developed. In this sense, the use of such knowledge contributes to better healthcare and better health outcomes.
For instance, based on the data of health services research, equitable, efficient, and effective health services may be provided, and health status may be improved. For the abovementioned aims to be achieved, health services research should be used to guide the formation of healthcare policies. The main contribution of health services research to health policymaking concerns problem identification and policy formation. Health services research may also contribute to policy implementation.
Thus, health research impacts healthcare systems, healthcare services, and health status. However, health research also has social and economic impacts while it produces new knowledge and methods for addressing healthcare issues.
Based on the previous points, this Special Issue attempts to highlight the importance and impact of health research.
High-quality scientific and policy papers, both empirical and theoretical, from academicians and researchers are welcome.
