NIH’s Health Care Systems Research Collaboratory is intended to improve the way clinical trials are conducted by creating a new infrastructure for collaborative research, and particularly pragmatic clinical trials. The ultimate goal is to ensure that healthcare providers and patients can make decisions based on the best available clinical evidence. 

The NIH Collaboratory also supports the design and rapid execution of several high-impact Pragmatic Clinical Trial Demonstration Projects that will address questions of major public health importance that engage health care delivery systems in research partnership. The NIH Collaboratory includes a Coordinating Center that provides national leadership and technical expertise in all aspects of research with healthcare systems.
