Health Systems Evidence
Health Systems Evidence
"Launched by McMaster University Health Forum on December 12, 2011, as "the world's most comprehensive, free access point for high-quality evidence" on health systems, this redeveloped version of the site created 2 years ago is relevant to policymakers, researchers, and healthcare providers. Continually updated syntheses of research studies that address health system governance and financial, economic, and care delivery strategies are accessible. Value-added summaries that indicate a quality rating and currency of the syntheses and the countries in which studies were conducted are also available. Advanced search functionality and search tips, including video tutorial, are useful."
