Teleconference: Research Collaborations between Academic Medical Centers and Community Providers: Opportunities and Challenges
Academic medical centers (“AMCs”) and community providers are increasingly considering and implementing collaborations to undertake research. Collaborations may assume many forms but common cultural, legal and operational challenges exist. Resolving these challenges requires identifying the challenges in advance and addressing those issues before the research begins. Ropes & Gray partners Mark Barnes and Eve Brunts and Jennifer Kulynych of Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System discussed the challenges inherent in such collaborations and options for addressing the challenges based on their experiences with such collaborations.
