Journal of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research

Edited by Albert Wertheimer, Temple University School of Pharmacy, Philadelphia, USA

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society's learned journals are published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society.

Journal of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research aims to become a focal point for the publication of all aspects of research within the field of health services research that relate to pharmaceuticals.

Health services research (HSR) can be defined as the multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technologies, and personal behaviours affect access to health care, the quality and cost of health care, and quantity and quality of life. Studies in health services research examine outcomes at the individual, family, organizational, institutional, community, and population level. HSR studies examine how people get access to health care, how much care costs, and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The primary goals of HSR are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care, reduce medical errors and improve patient safety.

Pharmaceutical health services research incorporates pharmacoeconomics, health economics, finance, health outcomes, health planning and policy analysis, technology assessment and pharmacoepidemiology. The Journal welcomes papers on cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness studies, and the financial implications and political outcomes of drug policy.
