Author information

Carle Clinic Association, Urbana, IL, USA.


Clinical and health services research will play a more important role in group practice organizations because it provides a vehicle to identify and answer critical questions. Study initiatives can identify, describe, quantify, and help predict trends in clinical practice. Systematic investigation is a means to link structure and processes of care to clinical parameters, patient outcomes, and cost variables. Findings can be used to support sound clinical, quality of care, and educational decision making. The ultimate goal of research is to promote the appropriate access and delivery of quality care in a cost-effective manner.
