Maccabi Institute for Health Services Research was founded in 2005. Its mission is to provide an organizational framework which encourages and supports health services research in the environment of a healthcare organization with the goal of furthering the health and well being of its members and of the population at large.
Maccabi Institute for Health Services Research is unique in two ways: 1) it is the only Israeli research center within a healthcare provider organization. 2) In addition, the Research Institute functions as a department within the Tel Aviv University School of Public Health. This unique connection between a health provider and an academic institution offers mutual advantages to researchers, students, faculty, physicians and other healthcare professionals.
