CHOIR's mission is to improve Veterans' health outcomes by developing, studying, and applying evidence-based practices that will be widely implemented and sustained.


CHOIR's goals include:

  • To enhance the transformation of VHA to a recovery-oriented healthcare system and improve recovery-oriented outcomes for behaviorally vulnerable Veterans.

  • To develop and employ next-generation tools to help Pharmacy Benefits Management (PBM) fulfill its mission.

  • To develop models and evidence to inform health communication to Veteran populations, using optimal channels, and including emerging technologies.

  • To enhance research outside the Research Focal Areas.

  • To develop future leaders in VA health services research who are particularly skilled in partner-based research.

  • To lead national collaborations of investigators and partners in our three Research Focal Areas and actively support the activities of other centers.
