UI Health and the College of Medicine will develop new ways to deliver health care to patients who have complex medical conditions, using funds awarded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. The projects, led by Jerry Krishnan, associate vice president of health affairs at UI Health, and Denise Hynes, professor of public health in medicine and VA research career scientist, will aim to reduce hospital admissions, identify and treat complications earlier and encourage patients to take a more active role in their care.
