Dartmouth-Hitchcock project aims to start, spread innovation

The Associated Press

LEBANON — Redesigning primary care to better serve older adults is one of the first areas of focus for a new health initiative at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

The health system's new Population Health Collaboratory — a cross between a collaborative and a "living laboratory" — brings together the clinical delivery of health care, the academic strengths of Dartmouth College and the research skills of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Police and Clinic Practice.

The goal is to develop innovative ways to deliver complex patient care and accelerate the process of implementing solutions.

Dr. Stephen Bartels, the Collaboratory's director, says under the traditional academic research model, it can often take more than 15 years to implement ideas.
