Comparative Effectiveness, Cost and Outcomes Research Center
The mission of the Comparative Effectiveness, Cost and Outcomes Research Center (CECORC) is to discover the most cost-effective, evidence-based approaches to improving the health of patients and populations, and to identify ways to put these improvements into practice. CECORC's primary emphasis is to evaluate medical devices, diagnostics and medical procedures. The research group carries out this mission by conducting innovative research, participating in clinical, database, other comparative studies, advancing the state of scientific knowledge through publications and education initiatives, and improving methodologies for studying the costs, quality and outcomes of medical care. CECORC investigators are committed to promoting collaborative, multidisciplinary cost and outcomes research, and to providing opportunities for fellows, residents and students to participate in comparative effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and outcomes research. CECORC is a member of the UW CHASE Alliance (Centers for Comparative and Health Systems Effectiveness (UW CHASE Alliance).
