Our Mission:

Our Mission is to develop meaningful solutions of complex problems in the field of healthcare.


Our Strategy:

Our Strategy starts with defining the true problem by working closely with stakeholders and using that as a basis to determine viable research activities and solutions. Once the problem is clearly defined, the next step is breaking it down to individual components and specific tasks. The tasks are then prioritized based on the centers mission, sustainability, resources and opportunities. Once the tasks are completed and problems are addressed, we finalize the process by gauging the potential impact.

Since many problems in healthcare are complex and multi-dimensional, we rely on many partners in the region as well as around the globe. In many ways we are a virtual organization centered in the Nation's Capital Region and rooted in the tradition of Ut Prosim- That I May Serve.
