CHOPR at Penn Nursing is a research and research-training enterprise focusing on the organization and delivery of nursing care services and its impact on health outcomes, health disparities, and policy. The interdisciplinary research team studies health system organization and policy reform and aims to produce empirical evidence to improve the quality of health care, shape health care policy, and redesign health care organizations (e.g., hospitals, nursing homes, home health care), with a focus on improving patient care and reducing racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in health outcomes. Established in 1989 as one of the first centers to scale up rigorous research on the impact of nursing on patient outcomes, CHOPR uses robust empirical evidence to inform policy and produces the next generation of scientists.
