Outcome

Founded in 1998, Outcome spun out of a Harvard affiliated research laboratory. The company has focused on outcomes studies since its inception and has dedicated itself to leading the way in registries, post-approval research, and quality improvement initiatives.

We have designed, developed, and managed an industry-leading number of patient registries and post-approval studies and have expertise and experience in more than 40 therapeutic areas. Our programs span the globe, with thousands of sites across North America, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and Australia.

In addition to working with life sciences companies, we also partner with many providers and healthcare organizations, specialty associations, hospital associations, pharmacist associations, managed care organizations, state departments of public health, Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs), and government agencies. In fact, nearly 2,000 healthcare organizations are our direct customers.

We are also actively involved in supporting federal initiatives in regulating and promoting post-approval research. Outcome is an AHRQ DEcIDE Research Center, selected to conduct accelerated practice studies about the outcomes, comparative clinical effectiveness, safety, and appropriateness of healthcare items and services, as a component of AHRQ’s Effective Health Care initiative.

Through Outcome’s role as a DEcIDE Center, the company was awarded the task order “Registries for Evaluating Patient Outcomes,” a project which led Outcome’s Drs Richard Gliklich and Nancy Dreyer as the principal investigators and senior editors to develop the landmark federal handbook “Registries for Evaluating Patient Outcomes: A User’s Guide,” originally released in May 2007, with a second edition released in September 2010.
