Clinical Excellence Research Center

CERC's Purpose

The Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC) discovers, designs, and demonstrates new methods of health care delivery that safely reduce population-wide health spending and disability. Our mission is to mobilize science to provide better care with less.


CERC's research program investigates areas of science that support the development of new, higher value models of care delivery.

Innovative Care

CERC discovers, designs, demonstrates and tests new models of care delivery that lower health care costs of selected clinical conditions.


CERC trains post-doctoral fellows from medicine, engineering and social sciences in methodogy to improve the value of care.
