On the Frontline
Precision Medicine Initiative
Case Study - University of Pittsburgh
In December 2015, The Chartis Group was engaged to assist with an application to the Precision Medicine Initiative Cohort Program (PMI Cohort Program) – now called the All of Us Research Program – by developing a five-year recruitment roadmap and providing a letter of support. The UPMC and University of Pittsburgh Clinical and Translational Science Institute proposal was the highest scored application and the organizations moved forward with an anticipated $65 million award to develop a comprehensive approach to enroll over 150,000 research participants.
Improving the Value of Research Investments
Case Study - Emory University
Academic health centers (AHCs) are working to overturn one of the final stones in improving efficiency and advancing care management performance – how funds are used for academic operating costs and strategic investments. But, in an era where hospital CFOs are examining costs on a granular level, executives are questioning how their financial support for research is actually being spent and whether those dollars are effectively invested to maximize benefit to the organization. Emory University School of Medicine has taken the next step in tackling these questions and designing a new model to optimize resources invested in the research mission.
