Center for Mobile Applications Research Resources & Services (CMARRS):
The Center for Mobile Applications Research Resources & Services or CMARRS commenced as a Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D) Service-Initiated Project (SIP) in the summer of 2018 with two aims that serve to fulfill a long-term objective. The first is to expand existing infrastructure by building a new platform to support Veterans Affairs (VA) mobile health (mHealth) research that is more scalable, efficient, and user-centric. The second is to provide app development expertise and methods to VA investigators seeking to use mobile technologies in their research.

The long-term objective of CMARRS is to create an enduring mHealth apps research resources center that would maintain and provide a mobile apps research platform and the materials and support needed to design and deploy mobile methodologies for VA research purposes.

Health Economics Resource Center (HERC)
: HERC is a national center located in Menlo Park, CA that assists VA researchers in assessing the cost-effectiveness of medical care, evaluating the efficiency of VA programs and providers, and conducting high-quality health economics research.

Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D): HSR&D pursues research that underscores all aspects of VA healthcare: patient care, care delivery, health outcomes, cost, and quality. HSR&D research also addresses critical issues for Veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan with conditions that may require care over their lifetimes. Within VA HSR&D, researchers focus on identifying and evaluating innovative strategies that lead to accessible, high quality, cost-effective care for Veterans and the nation.

Medication Safety (MedSafe) QUERI Program: The Medication Safety (MedSafe) QUERI Program implements and evaluates interventions to optimize medication safety for Veterans. The program focuses on increasing the use of high value medications, decreasing low-value medications, improving the safety of high-risk medications use and working with national and regional VA operational partners to implement sustainable quality improvement initiatives.
