DFCM City Wide Research Rounds

DFCM City Wide Research Rounds are a bimonthly, two-hour interactive event focusing on primary care research and research practices. Research Rounds are open to all Family Medicine / Community Medicine / Primary Care researchers, faculty, residents, students, and staff. Invited guest speakers will focus on research results, methodologies, and techniques; and the Research In Progress discussion will highlight new and exciting research.


Dr. Bhattacharyya will be presenting "Does health service innovation belong in the garage or on the front lines? Lessons from leading US health systems".He will discuss the gradual shift towards value-based purchasing and how the opportunities of digital health are encouraging organizations to explore new models of care, while still improving current processes. Many have set up innovation centers that incorporate methods from industrial design and the software industry to generate new models of care. His presentation will use case studies of different organizational structures for innovation from leading health systems in the US to explore how organizations build the capacity for health service redesign. He will also discuss relevant lessons for the Department of Family and Community Medicine and the University of Toronto.

Dr. Woods will be presenting her Research In Progress, "How we know what isn't so".
