Enabling a Healthier Future for Every Community

In collaboration with our members and research partners, we are building the nation’s foremost community laboratory for health outcomes, policy, and primary care research to improve the health of underserved populations.


Health Systems

OCHIN Research focuses on the way care is organized, reimbursed, and measured in health centers to ensure health care systems and metrics reflect the complexity of the patients they serve.


Social Determinants of Health

OCHIN Research evaluates how to capture social determinants—factors in everyday life that impact our health—to improve care for disadvantaged patients.


Practice Transformation

OCHIN Research is dedicated to improving health care delivery and outcomes through the development, application, and modification of EHR tools to support evidence-based care.


Health Policy

OCHIN Research examines the effects of federal and state policies on health care access, delivery, and outcomes in order to inform future policy and improve health in our communities.
