Mission Statement

The over-arching aim of the Institute of Quality Improvement, Research and Informatics (INQUIRI) is to discover and implement practical solutions that will improve the outcomes of surgical, critically ill and chronic pain patients.


In order to achieve our mission, INQUIRI is strategically positioned at the intersection of informatics, research, and quality improvement. Information from electronic health records, hospital databases, and other datasets is assimilated, and rigorous research and quality assessment exercises are conducted. The improvements in patient care are facilitated by the provision of information to clinicians, researchers, and leaders in quality, and by implementation of quality improvement initiatives.
