NICHD/Health Systems Partnerships: New Approaches to Advancing Maternal, Child and Rehabilitation Research

Health care systems are playing an increasingly prominent role in biomedical research. Increased adoption of health information technologies as well as imaging and genomics technologies are not only changing how care is delivered, but also providing opportunities for developing personalized medicine approaches to disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. These changes provide the potential to conduct research studies in real-world settings, on large numbers of participants, and enable studies that could not be addressed previously. However, health systems-based research on topics such as women’s health, children’s health, and rehabilitation have lagged behind research on more common adult conditions.

This workshop aims to identify key opportunities and strategies that will enable the NIH and health care systems to advance our mutual research priorities and to ultimately benefit the health of women, children, and people with disabilities. The workshop will include leaders from health care systems, academic investigators, as well as government and policy representatives.
