The Deborah Kelly Center for Outcomes Research

The Deborah Kelly Center for Outcomes Research

The mission of the Deborah Kelly Center is to facilitate exemplary obstetrical and gynecologic outcomes-based research in women's health care.

Overview

Mission

The mission of the Deborah Kelly Center (DKC) is to facilitate exemplary obstetrical and gynecologic outcomes-based research in women’s health care.

Outcomes research encompasses investigative efforts of women’s health conditions valued by patients, providers and clinical and translational research scientists. It is anticipated that the Center’s outcomes-based research will be multifaceted and interface with other disciplines including, but not limited to, epidemiology and statistics. Collectively, the data derived are expected to help guide clinical care. While the information yielded will also generate interesting biological questions, the DKC’s mission does not include in-depth investigations into the biology of the genesis or progression underlying conditions and diseases.

Vision

To promote clinical and translational outcomes-based research and the pursuit of internal and external funding by:

  • Assisting with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Facilitating hospital-compliant comprehensive data set collection and management
  • Analyzing patient characteristics and outcomes by departmental faculty and researchers sponsored and mentored by faculty of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
