Health Research + Innovation


AllianceChicago cultivates community-engaged research and innovation through diverse service offerings. Our work is rooted in a vision for health equity, and we engage our partners in activities that generate new insights, address gaps in evidence, improve experience and outcomes and explore important health related questions for underserved populations and the health systems that support them.

We promote capacity building and training to broaden and improve the skills of our network in generating and participating in research that addresses health disparities. A robust Health Information Technology infrastructure is shared across many of our community health center partners and facilitates the design of interventions, evaluation of outcomes, and description of populations.

AllianceChicago research priorities, developed in collaboration with community health center network stakeholders:

Behavioral & Mental Health

Chronic Disease Management

Health Equity

Health Information Technology

Social Determinants of Health
