Find Data: Center for Translational Population Research
The Center for Translational Population Research (CTPR) seeks to increase the value of population-based data and methods to researchers, including clinical researchers at Dartmouth, researchers at other CTSA institutions, or government policy makers.
The CTPR supplies the infrastructure necessary to create superior measures of population health and per capita costs and make them available to a much broader group of researchers, while creating new data linkages to support cutting-edge clinical research.
Inquiries and requests for assistance from the CTPR arise from four general groups: researchers and students at Dartmouth, researchers from CTSA institutions, government and health policy experts, and community boards and health practitioners.
The work of the NCPH draws upon the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, which uses Medicare data to provide information and analysis about national, regional, and local health care markets, as well as hospitals and their affiliated physicians. This research has helped policymakers, the media, health care analysts, and others improve their understanding of our health care system; it forms the foundation for many current efforts to improve health and health systems across the United States.
