He was founding director of the Institute for Health Services Research and Policy Studies at Northwestern University, which includes five interdisciplinary research programs, and is one of the most highly regarded centers of its kind.

His research has focused on the elaboration of national health policy, the efficient utilization of resources in health care delivery and the future directions of our health system. Hughes is also a co-founder of the Association for Health Services Research where he has served on its board and as its first vice president. He is the editor or serves on the editorial advisory boards for several publications including HMO/PPO Trends, Medical Interface, Health Business Digest, Group Health News and Perspectives on Quality in American Health Care.
