Innovation, Research and Education

  • Dartmouth-Hitchcock received approximately $129 million in research funding for 2014 and 2015.
  • Dartmouth-Hitchcock was a co-founder of the High Value Healthcare Collaborative (HVHC), a consortium of health care delivery systems and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. HVHC member organizations collectively serve a market of more than 70 million people across the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. The mission of the HVHC is to improve health care value – defined as quality and outcomes over costs, across time – for its service population, in a sustainable manner, while serving as a model for national health care reform.
  • D-H is one of only 60 academic medical centers in the nation to be chosen for the National Institute of Health’s multi-million-dollar Clinical and Translational Science Award, a project now known as Dartmouth SYNERGY, helping investigators advance research and efficiently translate discoveries into improved population health.
  • D-H’s Center for Surgical Innovation, funded by a $9.3 million NIH grant, as well as by D-H, and Dartmouth College, offers some of the most advanced imaging and research capabilities of any facility of its kind.
  • D-H is the home of the first-in-the-world Center for Shared Decision Making, founded in 1999 to facilitate collaboration between patients and caregivers to come to an agreement about a health care decision. It is especially useful when there is no clear “best” treatment option.
  • Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Center for Telehealth is exploring and developing new ways to deliver care to all areas of the region, including care in neurology, rheumatology, dermatology, and other specialties.
  • D-H conducts world-class research and education in the training of the next generation of doctors, with our partners at the Theodor and Audrey Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College.
  • Nurse researchers and researchers from other disciplines partner with the Center for Nursing Excellence on all aspects of evidence-based practice and research projects, including identification of topics, proposal development, implementation, data analysis, and interpretation of results.
