About the Center


To improve the per­for­mance and effi­ciency of health sys­tems through a sys­tem­atic analy­sis of health data related to human, tech­no­log­i­cal, and social fac­tors affect­ing health outcomes.


  • Pro­vide advanced ana­lyt­ics capac­ity to inform evidence-based deci­sion mak­ing in clin­i­cal set­tings, pub­lic health, health pol­icy, and health systems
  • Pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for experts from dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines (aca­d­e­mic, pol­icy and clin­i­cal researchers) to work col­lab­o­ra­tively on issues related to health data analy­sis and its implications
  • Pro­vide pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment and train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for junior researchers and stu­dents at Tulane Uni­ver­sity and other edu­ca­tional institutions
  • Develop com­mu­nity part­ner­ships to advance trans­la­tional research using data from health care orga­ni­za­tions, infor­ma­tion exchanges, insur­ance claims, health ser­vices oper­a­tions, and other sources to sup­port improve­ments in pop­u­la­tion health


As a part­ner­ship of LPHI and the Depart­ment of Global Health Sys­tems and Devel­op­ment at Tulane University’s School of Pub­lic Health and Trop­i­cal Med­i­cine, both orga­ni­za­tions will pur­sue oppor­tu­ni­ties for trans­la­tional, prac­tice, and policy-relevant research to sus­tain HSARC’s strate­gic oper­a­tions in a man­ner con­sis­tent with the mis­sion of both institutions.


  • Con­duct health ana­lyt­ics projects that use big data from clin­i­cal, admin­is­tra­tive, or finan­cial data
  • Gen­er­ate reports based on cus­tomer needs
  • Develop part­ner­ships with community-based, aca­d­e­mic, and pro­fes­sional entitities
  • Engage pro­fes­sional net­works for dis­sem­i­na­tion and knowl­edge trans­la­tion of health ana­lyt­ics data into health pol­icy and prac­tice improvement
  • Pro­vide busi­ness ana­lyt­ics and opti­miza­tion services
  • Per­form data inte­gra­tion ser­vices using data from dis­parate sources
  • Use advanced data tech­niques like data min­ing, pre­dic­tive mod­el­ing, regres­sion analy­sis, propen­sity score match­ing, and sim­u­la­tion mod­els to dis­cover insights into the data that may impact prac­tice and qual­ity of care
