Building Investigative Practices for Better Health Outcomes Research Network

The Building InvestiGative practices for better Health Outcomes Research Network (BIGHORN) is a practice-based research network of private primary care practices in Colorado, and a member of SNOCAP.

Mission

The mission of BIGHORN is to transform a network of undifferentiated private practices into a community of reflective, investigative practices and their patients, thereby enhancing the quality, safety, efficiency, and accessibility of primary health care through practice- based research.

Doug Fernald, the Director of BIGHORN, seeks to realize the next evolutionary step in PBRNs: a network of entire practices, rather than individual providers, representing the true diversity of geography, practice structures, patients, and communities of private primary care.
