College of Health Solutions
The College of Health Solutions was formed in 2012 to help ASU leverage its resources to solve the national problem of poor health outcomes achieved at unsustainably high costs. The goals of the college, in step with the Institute of Healthcare Improvement’s triple aim, are to simultaneously improve the patient care experience, improve the health of the population and reduce per capita health care costs while improving health outcomes. ASU is taking a bold stance in how it prepares the next generation of health professionals.
Under the leadership of Dean Deborah Helitzer, the college equips students to influence healthier lifestyle choices; develop creative interventions to improve the health of people and populations; analyze and translate large amounts of health data into solutions; and maximize the technology, science, business and application of diagnostics. Its programmatic focus is on the science of health care delivery, nutrition, biomedical informatics and biomedical diagnostics, speech and hearing science, kinesiology and exercise and wellness, integrated behavioral health and population health.
The college collaborates broadly with other entities within ASU and with strategic industry and community partners to address traditional areas including basic biomedical research, engineering, discovery sciences, nursing, life sciences, evolutionary medicine and psychology, to name a few.
The primary goal of the Biostatistics Core is to provide biostatistics expertise for research projects in the College of Health Solutions, the university and the community, and to address the critical methodological and analytical needs of research faculty. The Biostatistics Core enhances biostatistics capabilities at the College of Health Solutions and ASU, in collaboration with other research centers and institutes.
Center for Health Information and Research
The Center for Health Information and Research at the College of Health Solutions has a multidisciplinary research team that provides actionable information about health care to the community, health care providers and payers, researchers, public health, and other community organizations.
