Greater Rochester Practice-Based Research Network (GR-PBRN)

A Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) is a group of separate practices that collaborate with each other and often with researchers to ask and answer clinical and organizational questions central to primary care.

The Greater Rochester-PBRN (GR-PBRN) was established in 2007 to bring together primary care clinicians and researchers in a collaborative model designed to improve patient care and outcomes. Our collective efforts include research initiatives with all populations, where science can translate to better care.

We currently have 85 practices in our network, including 40 pediatric practices, 14 family medicine practices, 17 internal medicine practices, and 4 med/peds practices. Our member practices represent more than 200,000 adults (about 30% of Monroe County) and 150,000 children (80% of Monroe County). Member practices can choose to participate or not participate in any project, based on the individual needs and interests of the practice.
