    The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study Cardiovascular Outcomes Research Center
  will use data for the ARIC Cohort and Community Surveillance to assess the quality, cost, and outcomes of medical care. The primary focus of the CORC is outcomes research within the context of heart failure, including risk factors, disease onset, and outcomes. Ultimately a broad range of cardiovascular diseases will be studied. The main data sources are primary interview data obtained as part of ARIC Visit 5 examination, hospital record abstraction, and Medicare claims data. The CORC, which encourages investigators from outside ARIC to partner with ARIC investigators in analysis of the full internal ARIC data set, represents the first formal effort by NHLBI to conduct outcomes research within an epidemiologic study.
