Haggerty, Robert J.
The major contributions of research to the organization and delivery of health services in the past decade (circa 1972-1982) are described and some important areas for further research are indicated in the three main sections of this paper. The first section points out problems associated with the current state of the applied field of health services research. In the second section, contributions of health services research to maternal and child health are delineated. Research areas discussed are statistics, the structure and function of the child health care system, and advances in health and medical care (encompassing newborn, preschool, school, and adolescent periods). The present state and future of health services research are discussed in Section Three. An agenda for additional health services research is suggested and a list of 11 specific conclusions and recommendations is offered. (Author/RH)
