The UConn Health Outcomes, Policy, and Evidence Synthesis (HOPES) group codifies collective strength in the areas of outcomes research: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis, Economic Modeling, Clinical Trials, and Observational Research.

As the University of Connecticut Evidence-based Practice Center, we provide the federal government and their key stakeholders (payors, clinicians, national medical and patient advocate organizations, and patients) with comparative effectiveness assessments that support evidence-based decisions.

With a multidisciplinary group of faculty with wide ranging skills, an international reputation for excellence in outcomes research, and capacity to produce high quality results on strict deliverable schedules; we have a competitive advantage in the marketplace.  

Our strength is derived from clinical expertise overlaid upon strong technical and methodological expertise.  We understand the clinical dilemmas that our projects are meant to assess and create projects that have maximal clinical impact.
