Mission: to connect members of the North Country to innovative and modern medical treatment options in a safe and trusted way, while contributing to the scientific community through a rural health lens.
Through the promotion of clinical research involvement, education, and compliance, we deliver high-quality research in the following areas:
By partnering with pharmaceutical and device companies, St. Lawrence Health offers our patients, families, and providers the opportunity to take part in a variety of national and international clinical studies of new and existing medications and treatment options.
The research department provides support to providers and staff who want to pursue scientific interests outside of their every-day clinical practice. These projects include publishing interesting case reports as well as developing and executing their own retrospective/prospective observational studies.
RURAL HEALTH RESEARCH
Some investigators choose to develop internal studies to better understand the North Country patient population. These insights help us address the unique challenges faced by health systems in rural areas. To do this, we use various types of methods and analyses, including machine learning algorithms and data mining.
PATIENT-CENTERED OUTCOMES RESEARCH (PCOR)
St. Lawrence Health’s Clinical Research Department has been awarded $216,359 in funding through the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The award is being used to train St. Lawrence Health providers, clinical staff, and patients in the area of Patient-Centered Outcomes Research. Specifically, the program aims to provide education on how to best identify and address questions and outcome measures of importance to patients and the community, making sure to include the patient voice in research question formulation, and research design, implementation, and results sharing.
