Health System Transformation

Our “triple aim” research simultaneously pursues three goals: improving health care and health outcomes while lowering costs. 

We seek to remedy health system failures such as: 

  • inadequate systemic support for patient self-management
  • inoperable electronic health records
  • communication breakdowns as patients move across health care systems
  • poorly integrated medical and behavioral health teams
  • health care-associated infections, addiction to prescription opioids and other unintended harm due to over- or undertreatment

To accomplish this, our department’s Primary Care Research Institute translates comparative, effective research into practice for clinicians and and their patients.

We collaborate with translational researchers across UB, encourage interprofessional education and convert findings into practice.
