The Stanford University Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC) strives to lower healthcare spending in the United States by designing, pilot testing, and evaluating innovative models of care delivery. Our design work is enabled by research in areas including human factors, artificial intelligence, and positive deviance. CERC has partnered with the Stanford School of Engineering for its PAC program. The PAC research mission is to deliver Artificial Intelligence based healthcare service delivery solutions that improve cost efficiency and healthcare quality. In addition, CERC works with sponsors and national collaborators on its bright spots and human experience research. To disseminate insights from this cutting edge work, CERC and various sponsors are collaborating to translate these findings into practical solutions and evaluate the effectiveness of these interventions on quality and cost.
