What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) Program

The DOPPS Program collects data on patients across the globe, using a common protocol over time. This program leverages extensive longitudinal data to emphasize the effects of clinical practice patterns on patient outcomes. With a focus on the full range of practice patterns that may relate to clinically important outcomes, the outcomes measures are adjusted for patient comorbidities and adjusted to a greater extent than previously possible.

The international scope of the DOPPS provides greater variability in practice patterns and outcomes than can be observed in one country. This increased variation, along with the study's large sample size, leads to a greatly enhanced ability to understand the relationships between various treatment effects and patient outcomes.

Several studies make up the DOPPS program, including DOPPS, CKDopps, and PDOPPS. You can find more information about these studies at DOPPS.org

Population(s) Served

The Health Policy and Practice Program area comprises several contracts and grants with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition, CMS has awarded two contracting vehicles to Arbor Research: Research, Measurement, Assessment, Design, and Analysis (RMADA) and Measure & Instrument Development and Support (MIDS). This program area promotes the mission of Arbor Research by providing technical and scientific expertise and conducting clinical and economic studies. Work includes providing interpretations of policy interventions and proposing solutions to improve health care delivery and outcomes.

Population(s) Served

Arbor Research brings considerable expertise to large multi-center research consortiums by serving as the Scientific and Data Coordinating Center (SDCC) for several large studies. Arbor Research SDCCs consist of a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, biostatisticians, project managers, analysts, clinical monitors, project support personnel, and medical editors. Together, they form a project management nexus that allows busy investigators separated by miles and time zones to collaboratively pursue clinical research excellence.
