The Community Health and Disease Prevention area focuses on studying the translation of what has been shown to work in clinical laboratories into “real-life” clinical practice, both within the hospital or clinic and in the community. Such research often involves evaluation of the effectiveness or cost effectiveness of a health care intervention or barriers to implementation of such an intervention. It may consider health outcomes from multiple perspectives, including those of health care providers, patients, and health care systems.
Under the Community Health and Disease Prevention umbrella is the Children’s Outcomes Research Program (COR). COR is a multi-disciplinary research program that brings together the resources, methodologies and researchers to conduct research focusing on improving outcomes for children with a focus on community health and disease prevention. COR shares a building and administrative infrastructure with the University-wide Colorado Health Outcomes Program (COHO). It also shares resources cores in comparative effectiveness research, qualitative research, practice-based research network research and a biostatistics/analytic core specific to outcomes and health services research. In addition to housing state of the art research efforts, COR also supplies consultative and educational services for Children's Hospital Colorado faculty who wish to conduct research in this area.
