UC-Optum Labs Call for Proposals

Thursday, February 2, 2017


The University of California - OptumLabs partnership was established to help accelerate improvements in patient care and value. The 10-year strategic relationship will help transition California to a value-based health care system while leveraging the expertise of each organization to examine broader trends in care delivery. As part of the strategic relationship between UC and OptumLabs, OptumLabs will provide up to 7 UC researchers with complimentary access (aka: “research credits”) to its data warehouse. We are soliciting proposals for research ideas that leverage the OptumLabs data.


Principal Investigators at all 10 UC campuses (PI must be full time faculty at a UC campus and eligible to submit grants).


Deadline: Research Proposal Forms are due by 5 pm on February 2, 2017

The attached Call for Proposals contains detailed information about the OptumLabs proposal selection criteria and submission process. The Research Proposal Form (RPF) is also attached.

For copies of the Call for Proposals, Research Proposal Form, Research Application Template, and detailed information about the OptumLabs data sets, visit the UC-OptumLabs "microsite".


You do not have to wait for the competition to get started.  If you wish to “pay” for access to the OptumLabs Data Warehouse, you can move forward immediately.  You will find the Sandbox Fee Schedule on the UC-OptumLabs micro-site.
