“Quality of care” and “health outcomes” are nearly ubiquitous phrases in national and international conversations about healthcare, and centric to the AHA’s 2020 goals for cardiovascular health. The science behind these phrases is in the purview of the Council on Quality of Care and Outcomes Research (QCOR). Indeed, the QCOR Council covers the range from clinical epidemiology to health services research to health policy – promoting the science of healthcare delivery to optimize patient outcomes and public health. The Council is committed to multidisciplinary collaboration, career development, and expanding the science that promotes care that is effective, safe, efficient, equitable, timely, and patient centered.
The QCOR Council is an energetic, highly engaged community of like-minded individuals, committed to improving healthcare delivery and patient outcomes. As a member of our Council, you immediately become a part of this community, and there is ample opportunity for engagement. We look forward to having you join us.
