In 2018, Advocate Health Care and Aurora Health Care merged to create one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the United States — Advocate Aurora Health. Integration of these two contiguous health systems will result in more research opportunities to further improve patient outcomes and transform the lives of individuals and populations.
Our two research institutes, Advocate Research Institute and Aurora Research Institute, are working to integrate into a single Advocate Aurora Health Research Institute.
With this inaugural annual report, our goal is to share research highlights from last year in which both entities worked toward transforming care.
The research institute supports more than 1,350 unique research projects, including preclinical studies, clinical trials and outcomes research projects, and other research activities. We work to translate this important research into practical and more effective treatments for our patients.
This translation of scientific research into clinical application makes Advocate Aurora Health an important contributor to the advance of medical knowledge worldwide.
