"Building and maintaining a successful program of research to improve the quality of health care"
The mission of the UAB COERE is to build and maintain a successful program of research targeted at improving the quality and outcomes of health care. This is accomplished by:
  • using teams of investigators from across the UAB campus to test innovations that promote evidence-based practice, reduce inequities in care for under-served and minority populations, and improve quality of life and functional outcomes for patients
  • developing and testing innovative methods with application to important questions in the delivery of health care;
  • training and mentoring students, fellows, and faculty in these methods;
  • and serving as a resource to UAB faculty, health care systems and organizations, government, and philanthropy to further disseminate outcomes research knowledge and expertise.
COERE offers a range of expertise by bringing together clinical, biomedical, quantitative, behavioral, and social sciences researchers.
