Dilts + Partners was founded by David Dilts, PhD, MBA, CMA and Steven Cheng, PhD in 2013.  Both Partners are key opinion leaders in the intersection between operations/ management research and healthcare.  Dilts + Partners derived from the Center for Management Research in Healthcare (cMRHc) which operated at both Vanderbilt University and Oregon Health and Science University.  This academic-based center supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), WebMD, and others, had as its mission the exchange of knowledge between the management research and healthcare to dramatically impact practice of medicine.   Dilts + Partners was created to foster faster disseminate of this knowledge and facilitate the implementation of best-practices across organizations.
