“Developing Infrastructure for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research at Denver Health”
The theme of the proposed Center directly addresses two national priorities for patient-centered outcomes research: addressing disparities and improving healthcare systems. All 3 projects target the "healthcare required to achieve best outcomes" among socioeconomically disadvantaged groups, including racial and ethnic minorities. Designs effective in a safety net can inform high-value design in other systems.
