Improving Population Health and Patient Care Outcomes by Leading Consequential Epidemiology Research
The Center for Clinical Epidemiology & Population Health (CCEPH) conducts independent and collaborative research on disease occurrence, risk factors, prevention, and treatment. Our mission is to improve population health and clinical outcomes by leading consequential epidemiology research. Central Wisconsin is an ideal setting for population-based research - the Marshfield Epidemiology Study Area (MESA) provides a stable population base where nearly all residents receive inpatient and outpatient care from Marshfield Clinic. We serve a largely rural population, providing opportunities to examine the unique health issues affecting smaller communities and rural residents, along with intervention and outcome questions that apply to larger populations.
CCEPH scientists lead observational and clinical research studies supported by an electronic medical record, medication and immunization registries, a molecular and diagnostic research laboratory, and integrated clinical and research data systems. Our research addresses a broad range of health issues, including cancer care and outcomes, vaccine safety and effectiveness, viral respiratory infections, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and many others. CCEPH research teams include PhD and MD investigators, programmer/analysts, masters-prepared epidemiologists, project managers, research coordinators and interviewers. Funding agencies include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), and industry sponsors.
