The Center for Health Systems Innovation Care Delivery Team focuses on rural care delivery models, clinic efficiency, and technology that helps overcome rural health barriers.

CHSI Care Delivery team focuses on primary care solutions.

We create solutions to transform patient care with an intensive focus on rural primary care and communities. We design, test, and implement solutions to clearly defined problems in rural primary care clinics and hospital settings.

Rural healthcare providers face patients with more chronic diseases than other populations of same age.

CHSI engages with physicians and health care professionals who both inform and help conduct research, development, and implementation of solutions to increase access to care, expand primary care capacity, and improve health clinic efficiency.

Current rural care delivery innovation efforts include but are not limited to:

  • clinic efficiency
  • patient transportation
  • prescription efficiency
  • connectivity
  • mental health education and access
  • remote physician education
  • atrial fibrillation
  • diabetes
  • tobacco use
  • telehealth.

CHSI leads multiple efforts to ensure OSU Center for Health Sciences students gain experience and receive training in health innovation. In addition to employing Center for Health Sciences’ and Spears School of Business’ students on cross disciplinary teams through associate positions and graduate assistantships, CHSI offers students the opportunity for students to participate in innovation events and design seminars. In the fall of 2016, please look for a new student club based at Center for Health Sciences: Health Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship Club (HITEC).
