Clinical and Population Health IntegRation HOBI research
Collaboration across areas of expertise can yield results in research that surpass single disciplines. The Clinical and Population Health Integration (CliPHIR) team supports large, interdisciplinary projects and medical interventions in patients intended to improve public health.
Fall 2023: The University of Florida Pepper Center is seeking applications for two funding opportunities.
The complexity of developing new behavioral or drug interventions for patients requires a team approach. New solutions for combating and managing diseases are attainable by integrating diverse knowledge backgrounds. Ultimately, we aim to harness our collective energy to improve the healthspan of the community.
To conduct clinical and population-based research that integrates biomedical informatics and implementation sciences while supporting educational programs that improve health outcomes across the lifespan.
key focus areas
- Remote Health Technologies
- Maternal Health
- Mobility Loss in Late-Life
- Population Sleep Health
- Alzheimer’s And Sleep Health
Our collaborations extend across the full range of focus areas within HOBI.
To design observational and interventional research to address a spectrum of health outcomes, researchers use big data (e.g., electronic medical records, insurance databases, disease registries), patient and participant surveys, geospatial analysis, and longitudinal data collection.
Using scientific rigor and theoretical frameworks, implementation science brings evidenced-based practices to the real world. Researchers consider several levels of influence on individual outcomes including individual, family, physician, organizational (e.g., clinic or school), and cultural factors.
The new frontier of health research, biomedical informatics asks critical questions about the very nature of data and its integrity in an effort to leverage the ever-increasing amount of health data available today to improve health outcomes, health care delivery and health policy.
This burgeoning field develops knowledge with great speed and accuracy. In turn, this knowledge requires verification and testing in controlled environments.
The study of episodic and recurrent disease occurrences in a specific region for surveillance purposes. Findings are used to identify targets for conducting more smaller and more focused clinical research studies.
Researchers use observational and interventional study designs to assess drug therapies, medical devices, diagnostic techniques and new technologies in specific individuals who would receive a clinical benefit. The goal is to demonstrate both the safety and efficacy of an intervention.
Meet THE TEAM
These researchers have an exceptional ability to combine various fields into a unified whole. Like a conductor guiding an orchestra, they help to harmonize experts on various instruments in research.
