Cardiovascular Outcomes Research
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in San Mateo County, accounting for one in four deaths. This program is in the second year of a three year fundraising effort with a $2 million goal. A donation will fund outcomes research to evaluate services, monitor patient progress, assess new treatments and improve internal quality control by leveraging our data management technology.
Building an integrated system to collect and analyze patient outcome data in the short term, could assist providers throughout Sutter Health to determine the best interventions based on evidence-based medical treatment and surgical procedures over the long term. Sutter Health, the nonprofit partner with Mills-Peninsula, has already contributed $400,000 matching the generous donor gifts in 2014.
