Lahey Hospital & Medical Center launched the Comparative Effectiveness Research Institute (CERI) to better assess quality and effectiveness of medical care interventions.

CERI has been charged with identifying differences in effectiveness for a wide range of medical conditions through the targeted assessment of outcome, disease cure, quantity and quality of life, patient satisfaction, and healthcare value.


CERI is divided into several areas of focus:

  • CERI Administration
  • Device Safety & Quality
  • Stuart Spine Center
  • CERI Research Incubator
