Most observers agree that the old ways of delivering healthcare services are no longer adequate, so stakeholders are increasingly exploring innovative approaches. Industry membership allows partners to be on the forefront of leading that innovation. 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.

  • NSF contributes $50,000 – $100,000 to each University Partner to cover the administrative costs of CHOT, depending on phase
  • Each Industry Member contributes $50,000 per year to its respective University Partner
  • Ninety percent of industry member funding goes directly to research activities
  • The CHOT Industry advisory board (IAB) defines the research agenda for CHOT researchers on a yearly  basis using a project voting mechanism developed by the IAB
