About

The Center for Health Organization Transformation (CHOT) is a federally awarded National Science Foundation industry-university collaborative research center, co-funded by roughly 24 health systems across the U.S., to accelerate applied research and workforce development that integrates healthcare systems engineering, health services research, and health policy. In addition to the Northeastern University site (Benneyan, principal investigator), the consortium includes renowned faculty at three other universities – Georgia Institute of Technology, Pennsylvania State University, Texas A&M University – and healthcare systems in seven states.
