Tom Scheid and Heidi Christman from the Healthcare Collaborative of Greater Columbus presented on their PCORI-funded Engagement Award, “Translating Research Into Reality: Creating a Hub Model for Transforming Healthcare”. The Healthcare Collaborative of Greater Columbus (HCGC) aims to improve the quality, delivery, and value of healthcare and the overall health for all people in the Columbus region. The project team’s proposed solution is to identify and match relevant research results from PCORI's research portfolio with HCGC’s diverse partners, create dissemination pathways (a HUB model for dissemination) based on these matches and, where applicable, demonstrate/package how PCORI dissemination is maximized via a Regional Health Improvement Collaborative (RHIC). They shared their dissemination methods to date with some key recommendations.
