The 25th annual conference of the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN) was held April 10–12 in Portland, Oregon, attracting 420 attendees. The HCSRN, a consortium of 18 community-based research organizations embedded in or affiliated with large health care delivery systems, has hosted annual research conferences since 1994. The primary objective of the conference is to convene researchers, project staff, funders, and other stakeholders to share latest scientific findings and cultivate new partnerships among research teams, patients, and clinicians. Collaboration is the cornerstone of the HCSRN’s success; the conference serves as a catalyst for a variety of collaborative ventures as well as tactics and approaches to more effective and efficient research. This year’s program included 70 distinct scientific presentations, plus nearly 100 posters, and spanned diverse content offerings that mirrored the diversity of the HCSRN and its collaborators. Plenary sessions imparted insights on ways that data science and approaches to collaborative design in health care can speed the translation of research into practice.
