Outcomes, Quality & Health Care Performance Research
At Houston Methodist we are committed to measuring and quantifying the outcomes of our patient care so we can assemble both a “big picture” and granular detail plan for continuously improving the quality and performance of the health care we provide. Our interdisciplinary research is focused on improving the outcomes for patients through changing clinical practice, supporting patient decision-making, evaluating innovative invasive therapeutic procedures and promoting education in a non-patient-based environment for surgeons and other health professionals. Our researchers are also tasked with providing clinical research and educational support for optimizing drug therapy for patients by evaluating outcomes of medication usage studies.
For analyzing outcomes with a purpose of developing new clinical guidelines, we developed a comprehensive electronic data warehouse called METEOR that integrates the clinical, administrative and research data of our patients from across the system and provides a platform to analyze that data. We also provide expert assistance with statistical analysis, data management and high performance computing services to internal and external research teams, as well as consulting on study design and analysis for grants and contracts.
