2016 OneFlorida Annual Stakeholder Meeting Recap
On January 20, 2016, partners from across the state convened for the OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium’s second Annual Stakeholder Meeting in Lake Nona, where attendees celebrated the consortium’s accomplishments and strategized future collaborations.
At the meeting, Bill Hogan, M.D., co-director of the OneFlorida CDRN and director of biomedical informatics at the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute, presented one of the consortium’s most notable successes of 2015 — the further development of the OneFlorida Clinical Data Research Network, which received a $7.6 million funding award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) in August.
“OneFlorida has successfully brought together leading researchers throughout our state and nation to improve health outcomes not only in Florida, but also across the U.S.,” said Betsy Shenkman, Ph.D., co-director of the OneFlorida Clinical Data Research Network and co-director of the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute. “The variety of multidisciplinary backgrounds and specialties we’ve already connected and will continue to connect gives us a remarkable opportunity to conduct patient-centered comparative effectiveness research and develop best practices moving forward.”
