What good are ideas or data if they don't lead to meaningful insight and action?
The Value & Systems Science Lab (VSSL) was created to transform data and ideas into actionable insight. The Lab was founded on the notion that the more this type of transformation occurs, the greater the chance that value- and systems-based interventions can improve the health of patients and populations.
To achieve this mission of improving health outcomes, we focus on doing only a few things, and doing them well: understanding how payment, delivery, and human behavior affect health outcomes. We power this work through our core principles and activities.
We take these focuses seriously and believe that however worthy, anything beyond them is not in the best in interest of patients and populations, as well as our partners, collaborators, and funders.
