Collaborate with CHR

Based in the Northwest region of Kaiser Permanente, the Center for Health Research pursues a vigorous agenda of public health research within large, diverse populations. Our investigators are continuously engaged in collaborative projects with researchers within and outside the Kaiser Permanente system. We invite you to learn more about the Center, our capabilities, our areas of focus, and our researchers. Feel free to contact a CHR investigator directly to discuss collaborative opportunities based on areas of mutual interest.

For Our Regional Partners at Kaiser Permanente Northwest

The Center for Health Research is committed to supporting process improvement efforts in the KP delivery system. We work with regional partners to tap into Kaiser Permanente's vast stores of clinical data and investigate research questions that originate in the actual practice experience of the people who care for KP members.

We can help by providing:

  • Guidance and consultation regarding Institutional Review Board application and compliance
  • Consultation on research design and study development
  • Construction of limited datasets for chart review for data analysis by principal investigators
  • Assistance with budget development for projects that have funding
  • Facilitating connections among investigators at Kaiser Permanente Northwest and affiliated research networks
  • Assistance with accessing and using available biospecimens for research
