The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Health System (PRIHS) is a program designed to support Alberta Health Service (AHS) Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs) as nodes of research and innovation.
PRIHS strengthens health research capacity in Alberta by encouraging collaboration and partnerships between Alberta’s academic institutions, health and clinician researchers, patients, and AHS operations to impact the health system.
PRIHS is designed to align the knowledge production efforts of researchers with the evidence needs of the health system. The program provides opportunities for researchers to propose solutions to priority health system challenges and access support from SCNs and other expertise within AHS to administer implementation studies. In turn, these studies will help AHS identify and advance solutions that improve healthcare quality, health outcomes and value for Albertans.
