The Center for Health Organization Transformation brings together innovative health systems from across the nation to learn from collaborative research projects with two leading universities. With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), technology companies, and health systems, the Center's research objectives and projects are selected by the participating health systems.

The vision of the CHOT is a transformed American healthcare system that, following the Institute of Medicine model, is safe, effective, efficient, timely, equitable and patient centered.

The mission of the CHOT is to advance, with its industry partners, transformation in health systems--especially in hospitals, clinics, and physician groups-through cooperative applied research.

The goal of the CHOT is to conduct cooperative research, by teaming university faculty and students with health organization management and clinical professionals, who together seek to advance knowledge and practice of transformational strategies that combine evidence-based management, clinical innovations, and ongoing organizational learning.
