The Center for Integrated Research, Quality, Leadership, anaLytics, and Equity in Baton Rouge

The CIRQLE was created in response to needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to accelerate the connection between research and timely integration into evidence-based practice. With an active partnership with Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center and Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System, our members are committed to implementation of investigator-initiated novel diagnostics, researching available analytics for optimal implementation, and collaboration with national partners in initiating clinical best practice.

Through collaborative efforts, the CIRQLE has developed and participated in multi-center national and international clinical trials. Our mission is to enhance patient-centered clinical outcomes in sepsis care, educate future physician leaders on the importance of an integrated research and quality interface, and optimize clinical intelligence through utilization of analytics. Core to its mission is the desire to create equitable disease outcomes through an iterative evaluation of social determinants of health.
