CHOP Selected As New Center for Turning Research Results Into Clinical Practice

Published on

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has been selected to participated in the Health Systems Implementation Initiative (HSII), a new program launched by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (CHOP) to help turn useful research results into clinical practice. At CHOP, this work will be led by Clinical Futures and the Center for Healthcare Quality and Analytics.

CHOP is one of 42 participating institutions, and projects from these participants will aim to put research funded by PCORI into practice. PCORI’s Board of Governors has committed up to $50 million to support this endeavor.

“This new initiative builds on prior successes we have achieved with PCORI funding in the area of antimicrobial stewardship, as well as ongoing work in the treatment of kidney stones and rheumatologic conditions in pediatric patients,” said Alexander Fiks, MD, MSCE, Director of Clinical Futures and Project Lead for CHOP’s participation in HSII.
