The Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center is the academic home of the Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources and the Oklahoma Primary Healthcare Improvement Cooperative.


The James W. Mold Oklahoma Primary Healthcare Extension Cooperative (OPHIC) was established in August, 2014 to coordinate, and/or direct statewide initiatives that support the dissemination, implementation, and diffusion of the results of research relevant to primary healthcare.   Housed within the Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTSI), OPHIC represents the interests of public and private agencies, organizations, and institutions in Oklahoma committed to improving the quality of primary health care in our state.  


OPHIC is currently funded by grant R18HS023919 from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. This grant provides $15 million over 3 years to aid us in dissemination and implementation of patient centered outcomes research into primary care practices in the state of Oklahoma.
