About University of Colorado - Anschutz Medical Campus
??The “Adult and Child Consortium for Health Outcomes Research and Delivery Science” or ACCORDS was established as a new Consortium in 2014, although it actually joined two programs that had been highly collaborative for the previous ten years, the Colorado Health Outcomes Program (COHO founded in 1998) and the Children’s Outcomes Research Program (COR founded in 2002). Both Programs had grown enormously in recent years as funding sources had evolved to favor health services, comparative effectiveness, patien?t-centered ??outcomes and dissemination/implementation (D/I) research, the areas of research focus for both Programs.
