VA HSR Centers

There are 18 HSR Centers of Innovation (COINs) and 3 Resource Centers located throughout the US.

Centers of Innovation (COINs)

VA's Health Systems Research (HSR) funds eighteen Centers of Innovation (COINs). The COINs will build on the successes of HSR's earlier Centers of Excellence (COEs) and Research Enhancement Award (REAP) programs.

The COIN program rewards research innovations and partnerships to ensure that research has the greatest possible impact on VHA policies, healthcare practices, and health outcomes for Veterans. A unique feature of the COINs is that they include one or more focused areas of research that addresses questions of significance to VHA clinical and operational partners, and these partners will be engaged in the research activities of the COINs.



Resource Centers

Resource Centers provide support to central office leadership and field investigators by disseminating HSR research findings; providing information and consultation about VA data; and connecting researchers with each other through ongoing education and symposia.
