The OCHIN Practice-Based Research Network

Collaboration and Innovation through Research

The OCHIN Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) works with the mission to improve the health of underserved populations, enhance quality of care, and inform health policy through research. Our studies examine effective interventions and delivery system improvements, especially those that focus on:
  • Understanding and addressing health conditions with known health disparities that are common in safety net populations
  • Improving health outcomes in safety net populations
  • Evaluating interventions that have potential to improve safety net practice
  • Testing Health IT interventions to improve population health
  • Implementing evidence-based practices within the clinic network

Our partners in research include:

      Kaiser Center for Health Research

      OHSU Family Medicine

      Group Health Research Institute

    Virginia Commonwealth University

    American Board of Family Medicine
