The Department of Outcomes Research is the clinical research center for Cleveland Clinic's Anesthesiology Institute and is anesthesiology’s largest single-site clinical research unit. We are most interested in simple and low-risk interventions that markedly improve the outcome of surgery and anesthesia. Examples include keeping surgical patients warm, optimizing anesthetic management, and improving postoperative care. The Department is the administrative center for the international Outcomes Research Consortium. The group includes about 150 investigators in 20 countries who have appointments at 30 universities. It is anesthesiology’s largest academic research organization. The group typically runs about 200 simultaneous studies while publishing a full paper every 3.5 days, including many in high-profile journals.Learn More
