The National Library of Medicine (NLM) offers a suite of resources to assist you in research related to health quality, costs, and access. These resources are maintained by NLM’s National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR). Join us for an overview of three key websites, and learn how they can help fulfill your research needs.
- HSRProj (Health Services Research Projects in Progress): A citation database of projects in progress. It provides a comprehensive set of descriptions of health services research grants and contracts from governmental and private funders, with information from the mid-1990s to the present.
- HSRR (Health Services and Sciences Research Resources): A database of information about data resources – datasets, instruments and software – used by researchers in health services research, behavioral and social sciences, and public health.
- HSRIC (Health Services Research Information Central): A current-awareness web portal with links to freely available publications, databases, and more in areas important to health services research. The website places special emphasis on grey literature. It includes topics such as comparative effectiveness research, public health systems and services research, domestic violence and health disparities.
