There is a growing gap between available science and evidence and the ability of service providers to deliver high-quality care in a cost-effective way to the entire population. We believe that the chasm between knowledge and action is due to a lack of concerted effort among all organizations that deliver health care services across the life span of patients. Broad participation is needed and necessitates a far more explicit and concerted public-private partnership focused on large-scale transformation. In this context, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute convened a panel made up of leaders of corporate health care entities, including academic health centers, and government agency representatives to inform contemporary strategic partnerships with health care companies. This article provides insights from the meeting on how to execute a transformative innovation research agenda that will foster improvements in health care service delivery by leveraging the translation of biomedical research evidence in real-world settings.
