The Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Evaluation Studies (HOPES) was established in 1994 to respond to the needs of health policy decision-makers at local, state, and national levels. The Center for HOPES, which is located within The Ohio State University’s College of Public Health, conducts applied health services research studies to help public and private organizations evaluate clinical effectiveness, quality of care, costs of medical services, process flow in health care institutions, and other investigations in the areas of health outcomes, policy, and evaluation. Our programs have a direct and strong impact on health care in both the private and public sectors at the local, state, and national levels.
