Research Specialist – Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Posted 14 September 2016

The Center of Healthcare Delivery Science (C4HDS) is an academic research center in the Department of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The Center activities focus on implementation science and, in specific, on the design and testing of innovative ways to engage patients and providers in the delivery of healthcare. Unlike typical research groups, the Center’s work involves close collaborations between academic researchers and groups that deliver care, administer health insurance benefits and/or develop technologies for improving healthcare. The Center’s largest projects involve “real world” randomized controlled trials that seek to identify simple and scalable strategies for enhancing patient and provider engagement. The design and conduct of these studies must creatively blend rigorous research methods with the operational realities faced by organizations that deliver healthcare.
