The Center for Applied Health Research (CAHR) was formed under the guidance of Dr. Alejandro Arroliga, Chairman, Scott & White Clinic Board of Directors. We are located in Temple and Dallas, Texas. Our diverse research programs demonstrate collaborative efforts and strong partnerships with Department of Veterans Affairs, Texas A&M Health Science Center, national foundations and organizations and numerous health oriented community-based organizations across Texas.
CAHR brings together clinicians, educators and researchers with expertise in areas such as health services research, administrative data extraction and reduction, derivation of care and outcome measures from archival medical records, community-based health research, statistical analysis, research mentoring, patient-centered safety, patient activation research and academic development of clinicians. Mentoring of post-doctoral fellows and early career clinical researchers has been a focus of CAHR since its creation in 2010.
