Outcomes and Effectiveness Research
The Division of Outcomes and Effectiveness Research studies areas of vital importance to current public health concerns. Recent divisional research has focused on such topics as the quality and outcome of care, the use of information technology in healthcare, economic modeling and cost-effectiveness, and bioterrorism preparedness planning. Many projects involve a combination of these themes; for example, exploring the effect of information technology advances on quality of care, or analyzing the combined concerns of quality of care and cost-effectiveness. Faculty and staff in the Division collaborate with each other as well as with other faculty members of the Department of Public Health, with other departments at Weill Cornell Medical College, and with medical colleges, governmental organizations, and health service organizations in the United States and abroad. This cross-collaboration enriches the complexity and reach of the research findings and their implications for local and global public health issues.
