REACHnet Overview

The Research Action for Health Network (REACHnet) is committed to changing healthcare research and outcomes in the Gulf South through outcomes-driven, patient-centered solutions. Together, we're building one of the nation's most impressive healthcare resources.

REACHnet increases the capacity to conduct comparative effectiveness research by building a powerful health information technology infrastructure. The network increases efficiency of recruitment by giving clinicians the ability to participate in research that may have previously been limited by resources and time constraints. Today, REACHnet provides access to comprehensive clinical data for more than one million patients statewide--and beyond.

To ensure that network-based research best serves its end-users, the project actively engages patients and providers as key informants and decision-makers in the implementation of the REACHnet. The network’s patient-centered research agenda prioritizes patients’ and clinicians’ needs. REACHnet aims to support evidence-based decisions about the healthcare patients receive and provides optimized patient outcomes and quality of life.
