Patient-Oriented Research

Our clinical providers and social scientists continue to expand and improve the way we deliver healthcare to our patients. Our researchers have externally funded projects in patient outcomes research, implementation science, health service delivery systems, health communication shared decision making, and health disparities. Through collaborations with the Department of Community Health, local, and national health departments, the Krasnoff Quality Management Institute, and the system's evidence-based clinical practice and clinical integration, we are pushing the envelope in how healthcare is delivered. The Division of Internal Medicine is a strong partner to the Department of Emergency Medicine and Psychiatry in expanding substance use and behavioral health research.
