Indiana Children’s Health Services Research (CHSR) was established in 2001 as a research section of the Department of Pediatrics at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Our areas of focus include:
- Community pediatrics and medical home.
- Disseminating research through health policy research, clinical policy analysis and advocacy.
- Research and service concentrating on vulnerable children: children with special health care needs, children in poverty, and children facing social and cultural barriers.
- The use of information and technology to improve knowledge of children’s healthcare and quality of health services.
We strive to improve the health and health care of children by developing and applying the best scientific evidence and methods in health services research and informatics.
We are guided by compassion for children, partnerships with others and scientific rigor.
We seek to become the nation’s preeminent center for children’s health services research and informatics. We strive for excellence in research, education and service to children, their families, their communities and the professionals who serve them.
