About Us

The Center for Primary Care Research and Innovation (CPCRI) is a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals and researchers. Together, we improve population health by 

  • Implementing quality of care innovations in health systems and communities
  • Studying these innovations to understand if and how they are working 

CPCRI leverages our unique and independent strengths as clinicians and researchers to collaborate, which creates new knowledge and innovative practice to accelerate improvements that promote health system excellence and healthier communities. 

We are a bridge between scientific evidence, and clinical and community healthcare settings, using Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) science. 

D&I science is the study of how best to integrate evidence-based interventions into clinical and community settings. 

Dissemination research examines the process of spreading knowledge and evidence-based interventions to health and clinical care audiences. 

Implementation research measures the adoption and implementation of evidence-based interventions, and identifies and addresses barriers and facilitators to effective implementation.
