Healthcare Provider Organizations

Individuals interested in joining the Precision Medicine Initiative research study will be able to enroll through participating healthcare provider organizations (HPOs) or directly through the Participant Technologies Center. The HPO network will include regional and national medical centers, community health centers and medical centers operated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This broad network is designed to ensure that participants in the research represent the geographic, ethnic, racial and socioeconomic diversity of the country.  The following organizations have been selected as the initial set of HPOs with the expectation that additional organizations will be added. These HPOs will engage their patients in the PMI Cohort Program, help build the research protocols and plans, enroll interested individuals and collect essential health data and biological specimens.
