Center for Outcomes Research and Education
The Cedars-Sinai Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CS-CORE) is a group of academicians that supports high quality research efforts using a health services research model. Members of the center have published extensively in the fields of healthcare quality measurements, patient-reported outcome (PRO) development, healthcare decision making, health economics and digital health sciences.
CS-CORE maintains a balance between clinical physicians with training in health services research, and rigorously trained methodologists with expertise across a wide range of techniques. This allows the center to apply advanced analytic techniques to practical, clinically oriented research projects that ultimately revolve around patients and their perspectives.
Members of CS-CORE routinely interact with social scientists, epidemiologists, health economists, psychometricians, biostatisticians, computer scientists, engineers and physicians focused in multiple medical specialties. CS-CORE scientists work closely across Cedars-Sinai and partner with a vibrant external community of university, government and healthcare institutions. This model positions CS-CORE to carry out high-level research in an efficient and effective manner across a broad spectrum of topics.
In addition to its focus on traditional health services research techniques, CS-CORE is also developing new technological innovations to expand care outside of the provider visit. Using patient-provider electronic portals to support clinical decision-making in electronic health records, social media as a clinical tool and a range of wearable biosensors to track physiology remotely and in real time, the center’s research is providing powerful methods to understand patients.
Virtual reality is a way to immerse people in alternative worlds. We use goggles that transport our patients to different environments, offering a virtual "escape" beyond the walls of the hospital.
