Research & Evaluation

Community-based research and evaluation are essential tools in the fight to improve health equity.

At AllianceChicago, we work closely with patients, providers, and health systems to generate new insights and address gaps in evidence. For example, we share a robust Health Information Technology infrastructure with many of our community health center partners – helping facilitate the design of interventions, evaluation of outcomes and description of populations. Working in collaboration with community health center network stakeholders, we have developed specific research priorities: behavioral and mental health, chronic disease management, health equity, health information technology and social determinants of health.
