General Internal Medicine and Primary Care Research

The BWH Division of General Internal Medicine and Primary Care conducts multidisciplinary health services research on measuring and improving health care access, equity, quality, safety, and value through care delivery and payment innovations such as information technology and artificial intelligence. We also study the clinical epidemiology of common medical conditions. Our Division includes experts in clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, informatics, health services research, nursing, pharmacoepidemiology, and data science. To apply this research, we often collaborate with Mass General Brigham Information Systems to develop, implement, and evaluate new technologies (e.g., computerized physician order entry, clinical decision support, and personal health records).

In addition, the Division hosts the Center for Patient Safety Research and Practice. We also lead the Program in Clinical Effectiveness, a joint program with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Our faculty members have received recognition from a wide array of organizations ranging from the National Academy of Medicine to Boston Magazine. Our researchers have received funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and PCORI, from foundations such as the Commonwealth Fund, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the Risk Management Foundation, and from several industry sponsors.
