Developing a Distributed Research Network to Conduct Population-Based Studies and Safety Surveillance (DRN Phase 1)

The DEcIDE Network focuses primarily on comparative effectiveness of therapies to generate new knowledge quickly, with emphasis on areas of interest to CMS. The HMORN CERT was awarded a DEcIDE center contract in 2005 as part of AHRQ’s Effective Health Care program, which offers 6–10 task orders per year.

The DEcIDE Network includes all 15 HMORN sites, and to date, has been awarded six DEcIDE task orders totaling over $5 million.

The most recent award, a pilot to develop a Distributed Research Network to conduct population-based studies and safety surveillance, will advance the HMORN’s ability to conduct multi-site study by leveraging existing infrastructure, such as the VDW, and prototyping a scalable distributed network.
