Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies
Center for Cardiovascular Health Services Research
For over 25 years, the ICRHPS Center for Cardiovascular Health Services Research (CCHSR) has focused on the development of treatment strategies, decision aids, methods, and systems aimed at improving medical care, especially emergency and cardiac care. It has particularly been known for a series of studies of the factors influencing emergency cardiac care and for development of clinical predictive instruments as decision aids that provide emergency physicians and paramedics with predictions for their patients’ likely cardiac diagnoses and outcomes for real-time use in clinical care, and also for retrospective review of care.
This and related work has included conduct of multiple large national clinical effectiveness trials, including demonstrating better treatment and clinical outcomes for patients with acute coronary syndromes and acute myocardial infarction.
