Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Over the past seven years, Providence Health System (PHS) in Portland, Oregon, has used an outcomes research paradigm to study treatment of back pain, coronary artery disease, total joint replacement, and cancer. In presenting case studies of each of these areas, the authors chronicle the evolution of clinical practice evaluation at PHS, beginning with early studies in the 1960s, to the establishment of the Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CORE), to the formation of a new systemwide strategy that is responsive to the evolving health care marketplace.
