Denver Health’s Office of Research strives to create an environment that enables inclusive, inventive, and high-impact research across Denver Health. Part of Denver Health’s core academic mission is to engage in research and evaluation for the benefit of our patients and community by generating, disseminating, and using evidence. We aim to build partnerships locally and nationally, create and support infrastructure with effective and efficient grants administration, and conduct rigorous research and evaluation.
The Office of Research is composed of two core sub-departments: the Sponsored Programs and Research Office (SPARO) for research administration, and the Center for Health Systems Research (CHSR) for patient-centered outcomes and health services research, and delivery system and implementation science.
As a learning health system, we have identified a coherent research platform to:
- Advance quality of care
- Advance equity and reduce disparities
- Facilitate clinical, service, and operational excellence
