Mission

REACHnet is one of 13 Patient Centered Outcomes Institute (PCORI) funded Clinical Data Research Networks (CDRN). REACHnet provides a unique infrastructure for engagement of patients and providers for patient centered research, including: access to longitudinal clinical data for more than 3 million patients across Louisiana and Texas, the innovative Pragmatic Trial App Suite (PTAS) to conduct more efficient clinic-based research activities, engagement opportunities with a network of patient and community stakeholders to inform research, and collaborative opportunities with multi-stakeholder groups to drive research agendas and project development.

The list of research projects supported by REACHnet services is continually expanding, and includes areas of research such as diabetes, weight management, and clinical trials informing care for patients Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and Chronic Heart Failure (CHF).

History

History

Launched in March 2014 and awarded an initial $6.9 M by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), REACHnet is a partnership between the Louisiana Public Health Institute, Ochsner Health System, Partnership for Achieving Total Health (PATH), Louisiana State University, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Tulane University, Baylor Scott & White Health, and University Medical Center.

The second phase of this initiative began in September 2015 with an additional $6 .9 M from PCORI for the next three years. This collaborative partnership will continue to increase the capacity to conduct robust comparative effectiveness research by building a health information technology infrastructure that provides access to comprehensive clinical data for more than three million patients in Louisiana and Texas.
