Leading in population health management

Group Health Research Institute is recognized worldwide for its work to curb costs while improving care for entire populations. This work has influenced policy regionally, nationally, and globally.

We have improved the reach and effectiveness of smoking cessation, cancer screening, and immunization programs—to name a few. And we have refined, evaluated, and spread important approaches to care—such as the Chronic Care Model and the patient-centered medical home. We’re identifying ways to reduce low-value care, while helping patients participate more fully in their health care decisions.

By finding practical ways to make health care more effective and efficient, we make it possible for more people to stay healthy and get the care they need.
