Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Center
for Outcomes Research in Cardiology
Welcome to the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Center for Outcomes Research in Cardiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
We are a team of researchers and physicians using clinical trials and data analysis to assess the current state of cardiovascular care in the United States. We evaluate clinical practices, therapies and devices that are used to treat the full range of cardiovascular conditions.
Our evidence-based studies point the way to better practices and better outcomes for patients.
We're fortunate to be associated with the CardioVascular Institute (CVI) at BIDMC, where cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and vascular surgeons provide comprehensive care for the heart and vascular system. The expertise of our physician colleagues is invaluable as we work together to rapidly apply the insights gained through our research to deliver the most effective care to our patients.
We appreciate the generosity of Richard A. and Susan F. Smith in making it possible to pursue our goal: the transformation of cardiovascular care in the United States.
