see schedule oone of the cornerstones of scott & white memorial hospital's ("swmh") mission is providing quality patient care with a focus on research activities. Efficiencies are gained through innovation. The focus of much of the research is to find innovative & cost-effective ways to treat patients, while increasing patient safety, improving quality and focusing on better outcomes. Swmh has the following research departments, centers and institutes: cancer research institute, cardiovascular research, center for applied health research (cahr), center of cell death and differentiation, center for bone, joint and spine research, clinical simulation research, digestive disease research center, ophthalmic research, neuroscience research, podiatric research, division of research, family medicine, and ob/gyn research. The cancer research institute has been created to partner research and clinical care. The mission of the cancer research institute is to find effective cancer therapies quickly and cost-effectively. The vasicek cancer treatment center, a part of the scott & white cancer institute, is a state-of-the-art facility that offers highly-specialized and coordinated care in one location. Patients and their families have one-stop access to cancer diagnosis and treatment, backed by research and education. The institute has performed over 550 clinical trials. Each year, scott & white's vasicek cancer treatment center holds prevention programs designed to reduce the incidence of a specific cancer type. Screening programs are held in order to attempt to decrease the number of patients with late-stage disease. Last fiscal year 278 people participated in the free cancer screenings, 98 people participated in uninsured breast cancer screenings, and over 4, 000 people requested information on various cancer related topics. The cardiovascular research institute (cvri) is a joint effort of the texas a&m health science center, scott & white and central texas veteran's health care system (ctvhcs). This unique program pairs the world-class research of molecular biologists with clinical applications for the treatment of people suffering from cardiovascular disease or stroke. By discovering better strategies for prevention and intervention of these conditions, the work of the institute will benefit patients and the entire community. To facilitate such research scott & white has focused significant efforts on outcomes based research. Swmh has established the center for applied health research ("cahr"). This center focuses on diverse research areas, and brings together expertise in many areas such as health services research, community based health research, patient centered safety and patient activation research, along with research mentoring and the academic development of clinicians. The center brings together collaborators from swmh, texas a&m health science center and the central texas veteran's health care system ("ctvhcs"). Within the cahr, the patient engagement and safety research program centers on a team perspective in patient care. This program partners patients, family members, clinicians and other community and healthcare providers to create the best possible healthcare outcomes. The research is based on clinical trials, clinical simulation models, program evaluations, patient education and common intervention strategies. The health outcomes core conducts health services research focusing on severe mental illnesses and the management of care for patients with complex medical and psychiatric comorbidities. This group works jointly with swmh, the ctvhcs, darnall army medical center at the u. S. Army's fort hood, and the center of excellence for research on returning war veterans located in waco, texas. Clinical simulation research is another area directly impacting patients' healthcare quality and safety. The clinical simulation center was created, in collaboration with temple college, to allow healthcare students and providers to design and test new processes and procedures prior to performing them on patients. The clinical simulation center is used by medical and nursing students, residents, fellows, nurses and other healthcare providers. Simulation work enhances communication skills and performance of healthcare providers, preparing them for the realities of patient care. The goal and objective, of the digestive disease research center (ddrc), is to discover and share cutting edge knowledge about the digestive system and the diseases that affect millions in the united states. The swmh research team consists of basic scientists and physicians from a wide variety of backgrounds with varying interests and disciplines. These combined investigators support the practice of "bench to bedside" research to benefit and contribute to human health. Along with seasoned investigators, the ddrc also believes in training of future scientists and provides an excellent learning environment for the training of undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and residents. Scott & white has committed significant resources to establish a one-of-a-kind ophthalmic vascular research program (ovrp). This is a joint venture between the division of ophthalmology at scott & white, the department of systems biology and translational medicine, and cardiovascular research institute at the texas a&m health science center. New theories developed regarding the pathogenesis of various eye diseases as well as potential new therapies proposed and tested in the basic science laboratory, if appropriate and promising, can be taken into the clinical setting to benefit patient care. The neuroscience institute (nsi) at scott & white and texas a&m health science center college of medicine conducts state-of-the-art translational research, with scientific interests including drug and device trials in humans. The nsi is home to an invasive human brain chemistry and electrophysiology lab, neuroinflammation, neurogenesis, a neuromodulation lab, which includes a frameless stereotactic image-guided transcranial magnetic stimulator (tms), an autonomic psychophysiology lab and a functional neuroimaging (fmri) lab. One of the main scientific objectives of the nsi is the multimodal analysis of human brain function in both healthy and diseased populations. Research within the nsi is highly collaborative and expanding, with an internationally recognized team of basic and clinical researchers in the departments of neurosurgery, neurology, psychiatry and behavioral sciences and radiology. The podiatric research team has 12 studies in progress. They have received two national institute of health (nih) grants to fund two five-year studies. The total contact cast (tcc) study focuses on foot wounds, compliance and cost of care and complications. Another study is a collaborative effort with a research team from the u. K. , which will study the recurrence and prevention of foot ulcers. The podiatric research team also has studies sponsored by the american diabetic association (ada) and american podiatric medical association (apma) and are looking into the occurrence of ulcers in diabetic patients that are currently undergoing dialysis and how foot care affects diabetic foot complications. They are also looking into new therapies to deal with treatment of foot infections and open amputations. The division of research, family medicine (dorfam) has current research projects focusing on: bicycle related traumatic brain injuries, weight and contents of backpacks carried by school children, concussions among high school football players and miscommunication as a cause of medication errors in elderly ambulatory patients. Swmh has developed a virtual data warehouse which promotes comparative effectiveness research. This virtual warehouse allows swmh to share clinical and research data with other research and healthcare organizations. By partnering with other institutes, the data necessary for effective research is quickly and readily available, resulting in larger and more comprehensive data pools and increasing the cost-effectiveness of research. The scott & white system employs many physicians, scientists and technicians devoted to various aspects of research programs. In the fiscal year ending august 31, 2013, there were approximately 552 active research projects, of which approximately 31% are self-funded.
