TRIA Institute is part of TRIA Orthopaedic Center and is primarily supported through the center’s operations. We oversee activity in research, patient-reported outcomes and education. Each area has its own goals, objectives and tactics. Our mission is to advance orthopedic care for patients through innovative research and education, and measure our performance with patient-centered outcomes.
We conduct hundreds of research studies each year to advance treatment, care and systems to improve lives and share findings across the world.
We take pride in offering numerous continuing education opportunities for medical professionals to maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas of their field.
We were formed to strengthen TRIA’s vision of integrating research and education into all that we do. Clinical research, education, and outcomes are key components of the TRIA mission. We continue to educate the next generation of providers. And we offer ample opportunities for continuing medical education for our staff and the community. In clinical research, our continued focus on moving the triple aim forward allows us to seek unique clinical trial opportunities.
We collect patient-centered outcomes as a quality measure to see how patients are doing after common surgical procedures, and to improve the care we provide. We collect data on eight diagnoses at baseline and identified follow-up intervals. Results are updated annually and published on our website. Our outcome goals are: (1) to set the standard on patient reported outcome collection and management, and (2) to enhance patient care by measuring, evaluating, reporting, and acting on patient specific outcomes.
We provide educational opportunities for fellows, residents, medical students, and students in multiple medical education programs to rotate in our clinic and surgery center. Our Surgical Skills Lab offers a simulated operating room environment for health professionals to learn and refine surgical skills. Our education goals are: (1) to provide education to the community in order to enhance musculoskeletal care, (2) to support surgical skills education of residents, fellows, surgeons, and other medical professionals, and (3) to advance orthopedic education of students, medical students, residents, and fellows.
