Summary of key aims

The Maccabi Institute for Health Services Research will announce specific Focus Topics each year in its call for proposals and offer funding for the most promising research projects which coincide with the current focus topics. In addition, the Institute offers access to the Maccabi database (strict adherence to privacy policies is maintained) and employs a team of information specialists, scientists and survey experts to offer consultation for experimental planning and statistical analysis.

The Institute aims to support academic-level scientific research in the fields of health policy, healthcare management, health assessment, quality assurance in healthcare, cost-utility, cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness of medical procedures, outcomes of medical procedures, technology evaluation and assessment of the significance of clinical trials. The Institute will not support pure clinical trials or research.

Research Focus 2006- Ageing population

The goal of supporting health services research is well underway. A call for proposals went out in September and the Institute plans to support the most suitable projects. The topics promoted this year by the Institute are:

chronic disease management
preventative medicine

provision of optimal medical care while effecting efficiencies in order to cope with resource limitations.

In the future, the Institute plans to support large projects which will directly influence national health care policy.

Given the ripe environment for research - nearly 400 research projects were being conducted at Maccabi when the Research Institute was formed - Maccabi Institute for Health Services Research is well positioned to stimulate increased collaborative research, and generate innovative ways to improve health care and health care services to its members, Israeli residents and to members of HMO's worldwide.
