PHSP Work

The Population Health Sciences Program launched in 2011 as an incubator for care delivery science initiatives within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs.

An initial investment of $370,000 yielded $21,600,000 in external funding to improve care at UI Health.

  • The Population Health Sciences Program solicited proposals featuring interprofessional models of care to support the needs of patients at UI Health.
  • The awardees —13 faculty across 6 of UIC’s 7 health sciences colleges—collaborated in proposing four projects (* noted below). Each project featured interprofessional models of care and involved faculty from 2 or more health sciences colleges.
  • Two of the projects, Bringing Care to Patients: A Patient-Centered Medical Home for Patients with Kidney Disease and Coordination of Healthcare for Complex Kids, subsequently received $2M from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and $19.6M from the CMS Innovation Center, respectively.

Since then, the Population Health Sciences Program has facilitated over $50 million in funding to study interprofessional models of care delivery.
