The Department of Health Outcomes and Policy in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida is recruiting for a faculty member at the Associate or Full Professor level. We are especially interested in a candidate that would strengthen our collaborations with the OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium, the University of Florida Institute for Child Health Policy (ICHP), and the UF Health Cancer Center.
The OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium (https://www.ctsi.ufl.edu/research-initiatives/projects/oneflorida/) is a partnership among nine health systems in Florida. These health systems collectively provide health care to almost 10M or over 50% of Floridians throughout the state and represent over 1200 clinical practices, 4,000 physicians, and 22 hospitals. OneFlorida has a central data repository called the OneFlorida Data Trust that houses electronic health record information, health care claims data, vital statistics data and other person-level data. OneFlorida is also one of the nation's 13 clinical data research networks funded by PCORI.
The OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium and its Data Trust were developed to provide a venue for pragmatic clinical trials, implementation and improvement science, and novel biomedical informatics and methodological research to improve the health and health care for a range of populations, including children, elderly, and under-represented minorities.
ICHP has special interests in children at greatest risk due to poverty, social disadvantage, and neurodevelopmental learning and behavioral challenges. In addition, ICHP has a focus on Implementation and Improvement Science with a focus on examining quality and outcomes of care for low-income children. Further, OneFlorida has a Child Health Alliance and almost 4M children have data in the OneFlorida Data Trust.
The Cancer Center has committed to expanding its presence in population science. Multilevel and longitudinal approaches provide a common framework for the whole range of research. Individuals with skills and experience in working with health outcomes data and planning and conducting multilevel longitudinal studies are a critical need.
