The Center for Health Organization Transformation (CHOT)

The Center for Health Organization Transformation, or CHOT, is an industry-university cooperative research center (I/UCRC) funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and health organizations to conduct research supporting major management, clinical, and information technology innovations in healthcare.

CHOT conducts research to support the implementation of evidence-based transformational strategies within healthcare organizations. Our research model relies on the knowledge and experience of healthcare leaders to guide academic research. This cooperative model ensures that the research is both meaningful and applicable to the healthcare industry and provides immediate decision support for CHOT members.
