The Missouri Practice-Based Innovations Network (MO-PIN) is a practice-based research network within the Rural Health Research Center.
MO-PIN is comprised of primary care clinicians and researchers who work collaboratively to answer community-based health care questions and translate the research findings into practice. MO-PIN will advance primary care practice by fostering an evidence-based culture through collaborative engagement in research and quality improvement activities.
MISSION: The mission of MO-PIN is to foster collaboration of communities, health care providers and researchers to improve primary care practice through research and discovery.
VISION: Through collaboration and community engagement, MO-PIN will work to improve population health in rural Missouri.
The network fields proposals from both researchers and clinicians, using a project quality review process to ensure strong project designs. MO-PIN staff assists network members and researchers in framing clinical questions for research projects, implementing practice-friendly study protocols, and addressing resource needs for maximizing project performance and beneficial outcomes for clinics and patients.
The founding core members of MO-PIN are:
- MU Health Care and its primary care clinics.
- CoxHealth and its primary care clinics.
- Central Ozark Medical Center primary care clinics.
- Katy Trail Community Health primary care clinic.
Each MO-PIN member brings unique resources and assets to the network.
