Common Metrics

 The goal of CENTRIC is to facilitate the creation of a data repository to promote and support research on chronic care management. CENTRIC has identified common metrics that will be required for use in studies funded by the Center. If one or more of the metrics does not fit the focus of your proposal, please discuss this with the Scientific Advancement Committee Co-Chairs Ann Berger aberger@unmc.edu, or Mo Siahpush msiahpush@unmc.edu.
