Research: The conduct of biomedical research constitutes one of Partners HealthCare's core missions and activities. It includes fundamental bench research in all of the life sciences disciplines, patient-centered research within the inpatient and outpatient services of Partners HealthCare hospitals, clinical trials of new drugs and devices, health services and epidemiological research. Each Partners HealthCare affiliate with major research operations - The General, BWH, Spaulding Boston and McLean - acts as a separate research grant recipient. However, PHS coordinates system-wide research activities. Partners HealthCare has developed the infrastructure to support its commitment to clinical research. The Partners HealthCare Clinical Research Office develops, negotiates and executes clinical research agreements and associated budgets between Partners HealthCare hospitals and outside parties, including pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and assists the hospitals in the preparation of clinical trial billing and Medicare coverage analyses. PHS also seeks synergies in obtaining funding and in the conduct of research across the system, including PCHI and other affiliates. Partners HealthCare also provides a system-wide approach to creating and facilitating affiliations with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Partners HealthCare has the largest non-university-based, non-profit private medical research enterprise in the United States. In 2014, Partners HealthCare's total research expenditures were $1,416.5 million. Of this total, approximately $721.6 million (51%) was funded by NIH and other federal agencies. As of September 30, 2014, Partners HealthCare's committed future research funding was approximately $3.1 billion, an increase of over $400 million from September 30, 2013. The increase was driven by a 21% increase in new research awards, which totaled $1.4 billion as of September 30, 2014, as compared to $1.2 billion at September 30, 2013. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) awards, in particular, increased 64%, to $975.7 million in 2014 from $596.5 million in 2013. These awards represent multi-year commitments to future research funding, with DHHS awards having the longest funding duration. Other federal agencies that provide research funding to Partners HealthCare include the U.S. Department of Defense which has provided funding over the last 13 years to support The Center for Integration of Medicine & Innovative Technology (CIMIT), a consortium of BWH, The General, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Draper Laboratory and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), including approximately $5 million per year in funding over the last four years.

Expenses: $178,162,693
Revenue: $174,687,232

Teaching: The Partners HealthCare hospitals have a long tradition of educating physicians, other healthcare professionals and biomedical scientists. Approximately 1,465 residents and 675 clinical fellows in over 245 programs in nearly all specialties and subspecialties of medicine are appointed to the hospitals each year. Most of these are based at BWH and/or The General, but NWH, NSMC and Spaulding Boston also sponsor graduate medical education programs. A number of training programs are integrated across two or more Partners HealthCare hospitals, and several involve affiliations with other Harvard Medical School or TUFTS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE (TUSM) teaching hospitals. Graduate medical education at Partners HealthCare utilizes both inpatient and ambulatory settings; the Partners HealthCare affiliated community health centers play an important role in training healthcare professionals at Partners HealthCare. BWH and The General are major teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Most of the active clinical and research staff of BWH and The General hold Harvard Medical School appointments and actively participate in both the clinical and pre-clinical training of medical students. McLean and Spaulding Boston are principal clinical teaching sites for Harvard Medical School students in psychiatry and physiatry, respectively. Faulkner, NWH and NSMC are teaching affiliates of TUSM and also serve as training sites for residency programs from BWH and The General. NWH is also a training site for a Tufts Medical Center residency program and many members of NWH's medical staff and the chiefs of its clinical departments hold TUSM faculty appointments. In addition, The General sponsors programs in podiatry and psychology; McLean sponsors programs in psychology; BWH and The General provide training in general dentistry; and BWH and The General each offer internships in dietetics and hospital administration fellowships. Complementing the diversity of clinical training, there are approximately 2,000 research fellows at BWH and The General, with some additional fellows at the other institutions. These Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. scientists participate in mentored research experiences. Many also take part in one of the didactic programs aimed at basic, translational, or clinical and outcomes research that are offered within the Partners HealthCare system.

Research: The conduct of biomedical research constitutes one of Partners HealthCare's core missions and activities. It includes fundamental bench research in all of the life sciences disciplines, patient-centered research within the inpatient and outpatient services of Partners HealthCare hospitals, clinical trials of new drugs and devices and epidemiological research. Each Partners HealthCare affiliate with major research operations - BWH, The General, McLean and Spaulding Boston - acts as a separate research grant recipient. However, Partners Research Management coordinates system-wide research activities and seeks synergies in obtaining funding and in the conduct of research across the system. Partners HealthCare has also developed a system-wide approach to the creation and enhancement of affiliations with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to develop and test strategies and implement solutions for improving patient care. Partners HealthCare has the largest non-university-based non-profit private medical research enterprise in the United States. In 2012, Partners HealthCare's total research expenditures were $1,442.5 million. Of this total, approximately $796.0 million (55%) was funded by NIH and other federal agencies. As of September 30, 2012, Partners HealthCare committed future research funding was approximately $3.0 billion, excluding clinical trials. Partners HealthCare was awarded $338.7 million in funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 as of October 17, 2011. Other federal agencies that provide research funding to Partners HealthCare include the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Air Force. The Department of Defense has provided funding over the last thirteen years to support CIMIT, including approximately $7 million per year in funding over the last three years. Research areas include trauma and casualty care, cardiovascular disease, tissue engineering, image guided therapy and minimally invasive surgery, neurotechnology, inhalation therapy and simulation. New programs have been launched in traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder and integrated clinical environments. The U.S. Air Force is currently supporting a 2 year $5.2M grant for biophotonics that ends September 30, 2013.

BWH and The General are major teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Most of the active clinical and research staff of BWH and The General hold Harvard Medical School appointments and actively participate in both the clinical and pre-clinical training of medical students. McLean and Spaulding are principal clinical teaching sites for Harvard Medical School students in psychiatry and physiatry, respectively. BWFH, NWH and NSMC are teaching affiliates of Tufts and also serve as training sites for residency programs from BWH and The General. NWH is also a training site for a Tufts Medical Center residency program and Salem is a teaching affiliate of the Boston University School of Medicine and University of New England - College of Osteopathic Medicine.
