Bridging the gap between data and healthcare
Cultivating collaborative, informed, and innovative solutions to transform healthcare.
Our Healthcare Collaborative bridges the gap between data science and healthcare to improve the health of all patients. We are committed to building a health data competent workforce and advancing research projects that can better inform population health decisions.
Collaboration and Diversity are Fundamental
Building the health data competent workforce
The current and future workforce needs assistance managing the multiple complexities of health data to improve the cost, quality, and experience of patients and providers. We support collaborations that promote learning and teaching across sectors. Students do a variety of activities such as capstones and clinical experiences as well as research, quality improvement, and other related projects.
The Collaborative offers many opportunities including:
- Continuing education
- Student experiences and internships
- User groups
- Live events

Data exists in many forms and from many sources in today’s healthcare landscape. Addressing current challenges requires turning disparate data into actionable information. We design and implement projects using data from comprehensive and reliable data sources and facilitate cross-sector collaborations to study and propose solutions to improve population health.
Projects fall into three categories: research, quality improvement, and program evaluation. De-identified and limited data can be requested from our three data utilities, which are the health information exchange, prescription drug monitoring plan, and the social determinants of health platform. There is data from a range of participating organizations, including:
Medicaid & medicare
Public health department
Acute care hospitals
Critical access hospitals
Academic medical centers
Surgical & specialty hospitals
Primary care clinics
Specialty care clinics
Engaging the community
Building a health data competent workforce also requires spreading the word to the healthcare community about the many opportunities that exist to work with our Healthcare Collaborative. We meet with students and present at events around the country. You can submit a request to our speaker’s bureau here.
