Raising the bar on chronic disease care and prevention
The goal of our Center for Chronic Care Innovation is to improve the quality of chronic disease care and prevention. We translate research evidence into practice, which benefits patients, clinicians and health systems. Working with others who share this focus is a critical part of our strategy to improve health and well-being.
We increase regional and national visibility of this important research and foster the development of business models to make successful research products developed by HealthPartners available for public use.
Researchers working with our center have received more than $30 million in federal funding in the past 10 years to develop and study health delivery interventions. Our research includes a wide range of topics on prevention and care for people with chronic diseases. Examples include clinical decision support, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, opioid use disorder, depression, serious mental illness and cancer prevention. Many of our investigators are national and international leaders in their fields who have written hundreds of peer-reviewed articles and clinical guidelines on chronic disease prevention and care.
