The Children's Outcomes Research (COR) Program

About the program

The Children’s Outcomes Research (COR) program researchers examine effectiveness of health care for children at an individual, community and national level. The program brings together resources, methodologies and researchers from multiple disciplines to focus on problems responsible for the greatest morbidity among children in the US. COR is one of few research programs nationally focused on improving health care outcomes for children.

First authorized and funded by Children’s Hospital Colorado Research Institute in 2001, COR has seen annual increases in external funding since 2007. Grants from National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College of Surgeons, the American Lung Association, the American Diabetes Association, state governments and a number of private foundations have helped to build our research capacity. Additional growth has included the development of nine focused research areas of national prominence. Those areas include: Vaccine Preventable Diseases, Healthcare Quality and Comparative Effectiveness, Prevention of Obesity, Preventive Oral Health, Children with Special Health Needs, Maternal/Fetal Health (origins of disease), Injury and Violence, Mental/Behavioral Health, and Asthma and Pulmonary Health.
