Discoveries to Improve Lives
The Hospital’s Healthcare Research Institute (HRI) investigates the effectiveness of care of patients with musculoskeletal conditions with the goal of continually improving outcomes. The HRI will leverage the enormous breadth of clinical information available at HSS – where nearly 30,000 surgeries were conducted and more than 120,000 patients were served last year – to translate information about outcomes into better treatments for patients now and in the future.
The Healthcare Research Institute’s researchers use a variety of techniques, including comparative effectiveness analysis, clinical trials, epidemiology, and translational research, to answer research questions that arise from within HSS as well as from independent clinical decision makers, health care providers, health care insurers, and health systems.
The research performed in the Institute will result in information that will:
