Portland’s OHSU has been named the West Coast branch of an international organization that conducts systematic reviews on what works in health care, the university announced.

The Cochrane Collaboration, which reviews health care procedures and has 22 branches all over the world, announced its new West Coast branch would be at Oregon Health & Science University.

The new West Coast branch will work with the Cochrane Collaboration’s primary US center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland.


"We are honored that the internationally respected Cochrane Collaboration has chosen OHSU to be a partner in its important work,” said OHSU Provost Jeanette Mladenovic. "Health care — and the education of health care professionals — will improve only when we have the best evidence-based understanding of what works in medicine.

"That view has driven people at OHSU for years, and we're excited and proud to now be even more strongly involved in that movement.”

The Cochrane now has more than 31,000 volunteer medical experts working in more than 120 countries. It produces more than 400 systematic health care reviews each year — reviews that have assessed the medical evidence on everything from using antimicrobial drugs to treat cholera to the use of antihistamines for ear infections in children.
